Will I grow taller?

So I was wondering if I'm getting taller or what cause I hate my height. I'm a 16 year old boy and I'm just 5"7. My mom is 5"3 [160cm] and my dad 6"3 [190cm]. My genetics are quite helpfull but I'm afraid it's not working lol. Any hope I may have? I read I could grow until my 20's but it's just I feel I've been this tall for ages and ages D: WANNA BE TALLERRRRRRRRRRR

well, that also depends on your race. i was at 5'5 1/2" since i was 13.....if you've been at your height for quite a while, you're probably not going to grow much more.....my dad's around 6', one of my sisters is 5'7 and i'm the third tallest in my family and then two more sisters and my mom's the shortest (around 5'3)....anyway....5'7 is an average height...but i think you'll be staying there.

lol yes 5'5 - 5'7' is very average and most girls top out there.



i grew maybe an inch between 16-20 i'm around 5'6" now and i know i was 5'5" in highschool. after your major growth spurt at puberty you will not grow much at all.

You should be somewhere in between your parents' heights....

This is a sort of an example....

My dad's 193cm tall and my mom's 170...

I'm 174 now but I'm still growing which means I'll be somewhere around 180cm when I turn something around 16... Which is ouch because I don't wanna be that tall but I hope you'll grow...

my brother didn't stop growing until he was past his 20's. I've heard some supplements can also help especially in teenagers.. as for hope?? there's some of that. but you'll have to wait and see.

yeah you will grow taller , even if by a bit. Boys start growing taller later than girls, instead at the start of their puberty stages, growth occurs towards the end. The growth is mucch faster and doesn't usually start occuring until 16+ ages, in four years a boy can grow about 1 foot in height , since it's about 9cm ~10 cm a year . so i'd say by they time your 20 you'll be around 5'8 or 5'9 excluding if you have growth spurts which would make the number larger if by an inch or two.

my boyfriend is hispanic, and he's the same height as me.......he's actually taller than his parents (which is lucky)...but it doesn't bother him (him and his brother are the same height, i think...if anything, his brother is a little taller [they're twins])....anyway, he has been the same height for a long time too...at least since he was 14 (he's 19 now and i'm almost 19)
