Hi, did anyone here grow tall after 15/16? I stopped growing tall when i was 15 or 16. I am now 20 and still the same height and body build. I have gained no weight, i still look the same. Only thing changed is my skin is slightly darker. Oh and i am 20 years old male, 5ft5, weigh 9 stone.

It really depends on a person; after 16 I didn't change for a year (or something like that), but then, all of a sudden, I begun to grow again

At 16 I was about 5'7, I'm now 18 and around 6ft-6'1

All my brothers are around 6'3 and they were all late bloomers as well though

Most people don't grow after 15. I haven't grow a single inch after 15 but I had a beard and back hair and everything at the age of 15 and look pretty matured so it is assumed that I would not grow any more. But a friend of mine grew more than 3" after he turned 18 and he is now doing well with girls. The same loser friend of mine is now doing well because of that 3" while I am still a midget.
I mean mate, dont try to date but go get an arrange marriage.

I started growing around 12/13 and just kept getting taller at a reallllyy slow rate, pretty much stopped now at 6'1 at 20

Made clothes and shoe shopping a bloody pain though, since I'd consistently outgrow my stuff every 2/3 years, rather than just shooting up and getting it over and done with :mad:

I was 6ft when i was 16, and I'm 6 2 and a bit now at 19 years old. slowed down a lot so probably going to end at 6 3 by the time I'm 21.

I hit 5'10" at about fifteen and stopped growing until recently when I measured myself as I do every few weeks or so I'm just about 5'11 now. My mate on the other hand was shorter than me at about 17 and now hes 19 too and 6'4 lol. So I guess growth happens late for some people.
