    I believe the DB cusp will tend to be sharper than ML due to the fact that the DB is a guiding/non-functioning cusp. Several occlusal factors could alter this such as amount of Bennett movement, superior wall angle of glenoid fossa, etc. But if they're just asking, "Which will usually be sharper in normal permanent dentition, I would say DB.
