    I’m 17 and 2 months and 5”9. All my friends are beginning to grow past me and it’s really upsetting me. I don’t know if I’ll grow anymore and I really want to. My uncles are all 6” and above parents are 5”8/5”3 but I really want to know if I’ll have another growth spurt as I’ve been the same height for a while. Thank you

    Probably not. It’s better being short for many reasons but depends if you are a boy or girl?

    Not many girls would be keen on becoming more taller than 5ft9 so it has to be a guy.

    As for the OP, 5ft9 is around average height anyway. It's just be a coincidence that your circle of friends happen to be taller than average height.

    If you are a girl that is quite tall and if you are a boy that is not really tall but still better than some.
