I am aware that there are a load of questions similar but i couldn't find one that applied to my situation.

I am 18 y/o, male, 5'8

I have just recently turned 18 and i started to get a lot of small spots under my skin all across my forehead, these aren't new to me as i had them during puberty from 14-16 as i can remember.

Since they have just started to show up again rapidly and bare in-mind i haven't changed any of my everyday routines, i decided to measure my height. from the age of 14 or 15 i haven't grown at all from 5'8. but recently in the past 3 -4 months i have grown 1/4 of an inch.

Now i dont really know what this means, could i be having another growth spurt or even my first growth spurt? My mother is a bit shorter than me around 5'6 and i dont know what my dad is but if i had to guess i would say 5'6 - 5'10 (Never seen him so i can only assume). My mothers mum is around 5'5 and her dad is 5'7 but my mums dads brother was easily 6'3+

Although i am not overly bothered about my height i just prefer to know what is happening. No records were done at my doctors including height measurements so no help there.

Perfectly normal, growth can occur up to the age of 21 so no need to sweat.
