    My growth all but stopped by the time I was 17, but now at 19 I've noticed it's slightly accelerated again.

    I just wish I wasn't starting to get those first signs of ageing already :mob:

    I know this might sound like an extremely stupid question to most of you but I actually don't think I'm going to grow much.

    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?
    Don't worry, I stoped growing at 5' 7" when I was 16, but I started growing again in mid 17, now I am 5' 9".... And I did no exercise...

    You might, you might not. People grow at different rates, but if your parents are only small then you probably won't get much taller than them. That being said, my younger brother is 6'5'' and he's 15.. which is a good few inches taller than my Dad so you never know!

    Don't worry about what you can't change though. I always hated being a tall girl (I'm 5'9'' which I know isn't huge now- but I grew relatively young so towered above everyone, lol) but then just thought to myself hang on, your height is one thing you can't really do all that much about, so just embrace it :-)

    Most of the boys I know who were hovering around my height at that age are now towering over, and they've all beefed out as well, and that's in two years. I think the majority of males grow significantly in both directions (generally) between 16 and 21, or there'd be no way to separate the men from the boys :cool:

    the chances are you will become a bit taller. I stopped growing at 5'11" at 14 but now at 17 i'm starting to grow again. Also height is subject to regression towards the mean which means on a purely genetic level height is meant to closer to the mean each generation. i.e smaller than average parents will have children whose height is closer to the mean height. But also environmental factors also play a large role so if you wanna grow just make sure you stay healthy.
