I am only 5’4.5”, male, beginning my degree apprenticeship in September, am 18 (born December) and I am wondering when I will stop growing.

In the past month I have grown about an inch, and before then had pretty slow growth. I did not ever have a growth spurt during puberty and probably averaged 1.5” growth throughout. My recent growth has coincided with a larger and healthier diet, and going outside in sun.

I do not have any facial hair, and never have had any (never have shaved). I have barely any hair on my forearms. My lower legs have some hair and my inner thighs have a little although a bunch is still growing from small strands. But my penis is fair sized (just 6”) and my testicles have grown bigger, but not huge.

My shoulders have begun to broaden as I joined a gym, but they are not fully broadened yet.

I do have a genital hair and around the anus, but it is not that much.

My mam is 5’2” and my dad is about 5’10”. My brother, who is 15 is 5’7”. My dad has lots of facial hair and he did in his youth, but I have none so far. Even my brother has a little more than I do.

Is there any chance I will grow a bit (and if yes, how much) until my growing stops (and if yes, when could that be). Thankyou.

you're 18.
realistically you're probably done growing, and holding out for more than an inch growth at this stage is just pure fantasy

I have just grown an inch in the space of this last month though. I have not had any real growth prior to then.
