    It's different from person to person, and also depends on how you define "start to appear".

    I guess very roughly you could say:
    Top 2: about 14%
    Top 4: about 12%
    >6 : beneath 10%

    Based on pictures I've seen. I'm about 14% myself and can see top 2 abs clearly. Can see top 4 (not clearly) when flexing.

    Yes you should train them regardless of ur bf%. Training your core area now will mean that when and if you reach your goal of ~10% you will have a well defined 6 pack. Some people have trouble getting their abs to show at slightly higher bf as they are undertrained and need to be brought out.
