I have very little leg hair, a little facial hair above my top lip and zero armpit hair but I do have a fair bit of pubic hair. I’m starting to become really insecure about it. Should I see a doctor or something? My dad is 6’2 and I’m 5’9 which is pretty small so I’m just wondering wether I’m not developing properly.

Yes. My voice is relatively deep and I have pubic hair. I’m quite small though

What does “Geneyoc” mean lol. You’re probably just gonna be ‘late bloomer’

5'9" is really not small, it's pretty average also it's unlikely you've stopped growing so there's a good chance you'll grow another couple of inches. As to the rest of the stuff, I'm not sure why that's a complaint, the amount of people I know with small rainforests under their arms, none of them like it. I think you're doing pretty alright overall. It sounds like you're otherwise pretty average, just less hairy than most due to genetics which, especially with women, is generally a positive.

So it’s still possible for me to still grow and reach my father’s height?

Nothing wrong with that. Consider yourself lucky. Im a guy and I hate my body hair so I've shaved everything because that's what I prefer.

You're not done growing if your dad is 6'2 and your 5'9 with no armpit or facial hair. This is just a sign that you're a late bloomer and going to be liker 6'4 in the future, u might aswell be considered lucky

What's a doctor going to do? It's only hair, you don't need it. You should be glad you don't have much.

It's unlikely, I'd probably guess you'd be more 5'11 or maybe 6' but it's possible. I wouldn't get to hellbent on reaching a certain height tho. When you get over 6', you have new problems... like door frames.

I think you just need a bit more confidence in yourself. If you want, research what helps growth. Honestly there's really nothing wrong with being 5'9", it's not really seen as short, it's pretty average. 5'11/6' is again fine and still fairly normal. I'm your age, male and 5'3" so I know about short.

You're a late bloomer. Most people get armpit hair no matter what their genetics for hair (some get more than others). The amount of facial hair you get is determined by how much your father, his father or his father could grow.

By ‘Late Bloomer’ does that also apply to height?
I’ve heard that some people go through grow spurts when the they’re 17, 18 or even 19.

The growth spurt occurs often around the time that the voice breaks so if your voice is a similar pitch to your Dad's then you likely only have 1-3 inches left to grow following that as your spurt already happened. Don't worry about height though, the most important thing to have is confidence, which is developed personally and not genetically
