Im really worried about my height. As most of my friends or people around my age are at least 5'7 so i feel really short.
Most people tell me i look like im 14 due to my height and my "baby face" . And my diet its balanced and I am very active too. Also i tend to sleep 9-10 hours everyday and stretch myself often but nothing seems to work.
My dad is 5'8 and my mum about 5'2.
I have only grown 4cm in 3 years. So when i was 13 i was 161cm.

Is there a chance of me getting taller? Were any of you short at 16 and tall now?

FWIW, I was 5'8'' when I was 16. I hit a growth spurt when I was 17 and by the time I was 18 I'd grown to 6'2''. So there's hope yet.

I think you will grow more. Height is mostly predetermined by genetics and the mother's height has a more pronounced effect on the son's height.

Your predicted height should roughly be 5'7.5

I'm in the same situation but luckily for me, my baby-face and short height is considered cute because I'm female.

looking at your parents height, I wouldn't expect you to reach 6ft if that's what you're after. You might get to 5'7 or 5'8.
I was 5'10 when I was 16

Im 5'5 and I'm 20. You can stretch and add an inch or two but seriously the difference between 2inches even 3 isn't very noticeable. Iv had a girlfriend that was 5'8 and you literally couldn't tell a difference, she just wasn't aloud heels.

It depends on your posture and the clothing you wear can make you look bigger.

However you're still 16, and you Dad is 5'8, Id say you'll grow to 5'9 by 20, for sure.
