You don't want to be much taller, leg room starts becoming a problem and doorways become the enemy.

I was around 6'3" at age 14, I'm now 6'6" at age 26. I generally stopped growing at around age 19-20.
My mother is 5'8" and my father is 6'2".

Either way you could stop growing at 6'3" it completely depends on the person.

Height is an example of polygenic inheritance meaning it's determined by a mixture of your parent's genes but is also massively affected by environmental factors such as diet. My mums roughly 5'8 as a guesstimate and my dad is 6'0 (also not sure). I'm the same height as my dad but I doubt I'll grow more (really don't want to grow more). 16 by the way.

that’s true but 6’5 for basketball is nice. You can easily dunk a basketball and stuff

there’s a prediction thing you can do at the age of 2 or 3 where you put in your child height and then it calculates what they should be when they’re a fully grown adult. my parents did it for me and i was estimated 5”7 which sounded about right (my dad is 6”3, my mum is 5”3.). turns out that prediction was very accurate, i’m now 16 and 5”6, but still growing very slowly. my dad thinks i’ll end up 5”7 like i was predicted to.

not saying it works for everyone because some people’s can be way off! but for most girls i know who are my age, they are in the middle of their parents heights. for example, one of my friend has parents 5”0 and 5”9 and she’s 5”4!

i dont think it’s the same with boys though. considering your dad is 5”10 (which is actually still above average) it’s surprising enough that you’ve got to 6”2, so i wouldn’t expect you to actually get any taller. but i’m not an expert and you never know!

I mean I’m growing a bit like a quarter of an inch a month. Before I’d grow 1-2 inches month

6'2" or 6'5", you'll feel the same. It's probably because 6'5" sounds godlike to you but height isn't important. I'm 7.5 inches shorter and a male and I'm not really bothered. However, do what you want to be that height, I shouldn't be telling you that though.
