I’m a sixteen and a half year old male and I’m 5’9. My father is 6’2 and my mother is 5’5. I have always been shorter than most. I have no armpit hair and little body hair. For all my life I struggled with sleep. I went to see a psychiatrist and she prescribed me with some melatonin tablets. (Melatonin is the hormone responsible with sleep). I take that before bed and I’m fine. I was just wondering that maybe it’s the same story with Growth Hormone?

You'd need to ask a Doctor. However, 5'9" is the UK average for men, so you're not what would be considered "short". You may not have stopped growing either - puberty may not have done with you yet.
