Im 16 and 5 months, 5 foot 4 male. Dad is 5'6 and mum is 5'3. I havent grown taller in 2 years which is when my voice started breaking. This seems kinda weird since ive not grown a single cm but i havent finished puberty or anything. Over the last couple months some sllight facial hair has started kicking in, i'm talking fluff on my upper lip and a couple fine hairs on my chin tho. Armpits and everything else is normal so im not a particularly 'late bloomer'. Did anyone else not grow for 2 years then grow again?
Nutrition, exercise and sleep is all fine as well.

My younger brother who is 14 is 6 foot lmao but hes always been tall. Its werid cuz i was always average or slightly below average height up until year 10 when i just stopped growing. Again, i wasnt an early bloomer tho.

Another thing is my armspan is 5'8 which seems kinda weird since its quite a lot longer than my height.

If you hadn't mentioned facial hair, you could probably reach a much higher height, but when facial hair kicks in (chin hair). I am sorry to break It to you but you have reached tanner stage 5 where in which you will probably grow 1-2cm. My parents are same height as yours albeit my dad was malnourished in Asia when he was younger, but me and my brother ended up 6'1. My brother who is now 30 had his growth spurt at 18 where he went from 5'4 to 6'1. Heyho if you really want to get taller you can still consider leg lengthening surgery.
