Dw I'm 5'6 and 17. Realistically you probably won't grow anymore unless you're yet to have a growth spurt. Even if you don't, there's no point worrying about it because there's nothing you can do to change it. Just focus more on changing the things you can like your physique, social skills etc. stuff that is important.

If it helps I've known 5'3/5'4 guys get girlfriends in case that's what you're worrying about.

I was also worried because I had had puberty I think I’ve got all the hair and stuff but haven’t seen any sign of a beard but have a little tash coming through not really noticeable so I’m hoping this means I still have long to grow

If you can't grow anymore just don't fret about it, though. There's more to life than height and sometimes you have to make do with the tools you've been given. Good luck with your growing haha

Most men stop growing around 16, I was 15 and a half but it depends on your genetics and when you hit puberty. Generally speaking puberty finishes 5 years after it starts - when you stop growing and beard growth has nothing to do with it that can come even later. You can determine where you're at by looking up the male tanner stages

I am a girl and I dont tend to notice heights loads. Obviously you can the difference between someone who is 6 foot and someone who is 5'8 but i dont pay much attention to it. I am 5'4 so you are already taller than me (im average height for a girl). The average height in the UK for a guy is 5'9? and most guys ik are around 5'6-5'10 and its not like it stops you from anything. I dont talk to a guy and think he's short if you get what i mean because the 6 foot thing is unrealistic and in the minority anyway. There are certainty more important things to worry about and as other people have stated you could very well have a growth spurt. My grandad is 5'4 and he never had any problem with getting women if that makes you feel better.
