    Hello all,

    I turned 16 last September. My height is 5'7.5. My dad is 5'9.5 and my mum is 5'3. My dad said he grew alot after 16 and he was smaller than me when he was my age. I've already had my growth spurt. Is it possible that I can reach 5'10/11? Any ways that I could try to reach it? I know that most of your height is determined by genetics!

    My Dad and Mum were 5'8 and 5'2 respectively, yet my brother and I just touched 6'0.

    Also almost every one I know they're taller than their parents, I'm sure you'll still have room to grow mate.

    I was 5'7 when I was 16, now i'm 17 and 5'10 so it's definitely possible

    I had a growth spurt when I was 17 and grew to about 6 ft, then another 2 inches over the next few years to 6'2''.
