He is definitely BFing more to make up for the solids. He is cutting 3 top front teeth right now, poor guy! I am just freaking a little. I wasn't feeding him that much to begin with but now he won't open his mouth.

Should I be concerned? Is this normal? I know when mouth hurts, like when I had braces as a teen, I wouldn't want to eat much either.....

What do you all think? Maybe I can get some solds in him another "secret" way? Any tips?

Don't worry about it. Plenty of babies don't eat any solids until after a year. Just keep nursing. They don't really get any nutrition from solids in the first year anyway.
