This might sound stupid but I am 18 and I am very certain I had experienced most of the changes during puberty later on average (by about 2/3 years). I have heard that during puberty it is the legs that usually stop growing first and the torso and spine continue to elongate for a bit longer before they are also done growing. I am a 6ft male and my inseam is about 35 inches (give or take a quarter of an inch) and I have heard that this is fairly long for a 6ft guy, does this mean that my spine and torso may elongate some more to balance out the ratio of height to inseam?
