Provided that your general nutrition is OK, and you don't suffer from any underlying medical conditions - then the model for likely full adult height is well understood - it's entirely a matter of parental inherited genetics.

For males - add together your parents' heights (in cm), then add another 13 cm and divide by two.
For females, subtract (rather than add) the 13 cm, before division.

Eg. Your father is 180 cm tall, and your mother 155 cm. If you're male, then your likely full adult/final height will be (180+155+13)/2 = 174 cm.

A lot of people have stopped growing by the age of 17, it isn't uncommon.

If you are under 5 foot it’s probably not a condition it’s just unfortunate
