I'm 16—do I still have much to grow?Watch
I'm 5'7 and I've practically stopped growing or having any growth spurts for more than a year.
I dun wanna stop growing. I know I'm only 16 but I think that I pretty much don't have that anything left to grow. I'm saying this because I'm Bengali. My mum is probably around 4ft11 to 5ft and my Dad is around 5'7. I've watched all my friends my age grow way taller than me and I'm practically one of the shortest out of all the average-heighted people. I used to be slightly above average 'cause I had a few growth spurts at a young age but then everyone just grew taller than me while I didn't grow at all. My brother is 6ft though.
So do I have much left to grow?
Apparently boys continue growing until around 21. I'd be more worried if I were a girl, because we stop growing around 16, and I've only a few months left until I'm 16 :s. With that being said, it's maybe a bit more worrying to be a short male than it is to be a short female.
You can still have long legs whilst being short, and men do biologically prefer short females with long legs to body ratio, than short females with a longer body. I'm sure the same applies to tall females with shorter legs and longer bodies.
