At 15 I was 6'1. Didn't grow beyond that. A lot of people who were fairly short when I left school are now taller me though. It's weird seeing them now.

Someone please tell me that it is not unusual for a 15/16 year old to only be 5''5. And btw as I am this height at this age, does it mean I won't grow no more

My friend is 4'6 but she is a Russian Gymnast so it certainly helps her in her sport especially. She wishes she was taller though so she could be a model or actress instead lol.

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.
I'm a girl and grown an inch since I was 15, now nearly 20. My sister stopped growing when she was 15 though, mind you she's tall enough!

I was 5'6 in June 2009, when I was 16, but I shot up after that to 6'2.

I'm 21, my beard started to grow last summer, and just about filled out now. So I think it depends on genetics, and men can change alot up until 25, but look at your family for frame of reference.

I am 5ft11, I was like 5ft10 at 16 though, but i'm hoping to reach 6ft. Most my family are around 6ft2, the tallest being 6ft7, so my chances are not bad.

Do your genetics really play a massive part in your height? I just turned 16 and I'm already taller than everyone in my family at 5ft 8 and a bit inches, worried I'm not going to grow anymore.

Really? Do you need to ask this? Someone skipped a few science classes in school...

(The answer is yes.)

I've only ever grown extremely slowly, and I'm 5 foot 2.5. I'm still waiting on a growth spurt at the age of 19. Probably won't happen.
