    You most likely will, I think you'll stop growing at mid/early 20s so yeah, it'll be gradual and you might not end up at 6ft (it's possible though) but you will definitely grow more

    No, unless you break your legs and use a contraption that separates your bone to grow for 8 months of pain. But who cares about height really?

    You stop growing at the end of puberty which is typically at the age of 17-18 in males

    5'9 isn't bad though, I wouldn't worry too much
