You’re 15 dude; I’ve probably grown about 4 inches since then but I was always tall. You might well be a late bloomer and shoot up in your late teens
There’s a boy in my year. He’s 14. He’s 6ft9. Like wtf

Well he’s a 1 in a million freak. How tall are your parents and grandparents? Should give you a good idea of your height potential

In this thread, a girl says that a 5'10" guy may be a hunk but the exact same guy at 5'7" is suddenly a "little brother", and wonders why guys are insecure about their height.

Because it's probably the most important physical trait for attracting women.

"Only 4% of women would accept a dating relationship where the woman was taller".

It makes sense for men to exaggerate their height (although I would consider it unethical to lie about it). The taller they are, the more women would consider them as a potential partner.
