    5'7 is pretty tall already!! average in the UK is about 5'4 so your not short!!! x
    No it isn't, the average in the UK is 5'10"

    OP I stopped growing when I was 19. I was about 6ft when I was 16 and I'm 6'4" and have been since I was 19 so I grew 4 inches in 3 years. Being Bengali I'm not sure if you can expect to grow much more, but it's definitely possible.

    Update: I'm 19 now and, ignoring how much of an idiot I sound like here, I have in fact grown one inch.

    Update: OP still a manlet.

    Dont worry dude, I'm a mere 5ft 8 but still am able to have a normal life + get all the main benefits of being short e.g. not having to duck when going through doorways.

    Plus it means it's easier to bulk up so you can make up for it by putting on some intimidating mass in the gym
