Missä on juusto... Doesn't work. Haha

Yeah, we don't really say it like that; changing the order [subject+copula] makes it sound unnatural.

Why not "missä juustoa on" ?

I think that would be more like "Where is some cheese?", though the most neutral word order for that would be 'Missä on juustoa?'
