    You will probably grow till 18 like everyone. You will robably grow till 5ft8-9-10 maximum which is the average height for males. Trust me you will rarely find a girl at that height.

    Okay....
    1. I though boys grow until 23 years of age?
    2. How can I make sure I'll be 5ft 10?

    Boys do not grow till 23 unless they start puberty very late
    Depends on when you started puberty. You can't really make sure youll grow to that height especially because your onl 5ft6 and your 16. It also heavily depends on genes. But eat a balanced diet -calcuim they say.

    I'm 6'1, my cousin who is a year older than me has always been shorter by quite a bit, he was maybe 5'8, I didn't see him for about a year and he shot up to 6'2 or something crazy, now years later he's about 6'3/4 and I'm still 6'1. So you definitely still have a chance to grow.
