daughter has no started puberty?

My oldest daughter is 13 and does not seem to have started puberty. She is about 4 foot 9 and 90 pounds. She has no pubic hair or breasts. although her nipples do seem a bit puffy, but i don't know if that means anything. As you can imagine, this has been VERY hard on her because all of the other girls are taller and have breasts and she certainly gets her fine share of teasing. She sometimes bursts into tears over it. I try to console her, telling her that she is just a late bloomer and her time will come soon. But her 14th birthday is coming up this summer and i am wondering if i should consult a specialist or something? Are any of you the parent of a late bloomer? How did you handle it? Thanks!
