    hiya! It all really depends on your body tbh. If you're drinking enough milk and sleeping enough, you'll grow. Hope that helps...but I think guys grow up until 21 (I believe) so DW!

    Don't worry You will grow! I know lots of 17 years old guys that are below 4'10 and they had fairy dust or something cause some of them grew freakishly tall in like two months. Just like the answer above, I've always been told that sleeping will help you grow. Every person is different though and it just takes time, but it will happen! Always think positive and drink lots of milk, eat yogurt, get plenty of vitamin D and increase your zinc intake through natural foods. Stay away from processed foods (and I know how tempting they can be but if your a food junk junkie, then just try and lower the intake of processed) and remember to stand straight! It sounds silly but standing straighter helps your back from developing kyphosis (hunchback) in your later years which can obviously affect how tall you are. When you slouch, pretend someone's pulling the top of your hair :P and if you really want to grow fast, visit your doctor and ask for advice. Best of luck!!!
