This case report describes the presence of a talon cusp in a right primary incisor in a 6-year-old girl. It is a rare entity with only three cases having been reported from the Indian population. The talon cusp showed presence of wear facets along with altered morphology of the involved tooth. No treatment was done apart from sealing the cusp-tooth interface with fissure sealant.
