    Hey guys, so I need some advice. I'm 16 and turning 17 in September, and I am only 5'6 (168cm), and I want to know realistically if I can grow anymore. When I was young, I was alway very small, and my parents got my bone age measured, and it turns out it was 15 months behind what it should be, and I was developing at that rate.
    I hit puberty around year 9, and it seemed to hit me from the legs up, I had leg hair and pubic hair, but no armpit hair. I noticed myself growing, and finally caught up to my brother (the year below me), who has always been taller than me. At present, my voice has broken, I have very hairy legs (like my dad), my peenor has grown to a happy length, and I am developing facial hair (but it grows very slowly except from the moles on my face). I have very little chest hair (unlike my dad), but a plentiful supply of armpit hair. So all the signs seem to say that I am nearing the end of puberty.
    However, my dad is 5'11/6ft (idk which), and my younger 15 yr old brother is the same height. My mum is around 5'5/5'6, idk about my grandparents except my grandmother on my mums side is very small, maybe around 5ft. I seem to have neared the end of puberty, but the growing side of it seems to have missed me. However recently my feet have grown again, after lying dormant for a year, and I am now size 10 (nike trainer). Could this mean I might still have another growth spurt in me?
    Sorry for the long post, any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
