hi I’m aware that my wisdom tooth is infected and have got antibiotics. is it likely the wisdom tooth will grow out or is it growing a different way? My gum is swollen and have pain in ear, neck and jaw is this saying that the tooth is impacted?

It's growing upright which is good, but it looks like you don't have enough length in your jaw such that it will fully come through the gums. So you will probably be at risk of recurrent gum infections and require extractions.
