Reached 16 years old 2 months ago and I'm 5'9 (175cm) at the moment, can I grow taller? I'm taller than my parents (they're both 5'4), but my grandfather and all my uncles/aunts are pretty tall (more than 6'1 for sure)
I read that sleep, nutrition and exercising may affect height.
My sleeping schedule is normal (8-9hours of sleep generally), but I'm not sure when it comes to nutrition, I just eat randomly lets say.(What should I be eating more often and what should I avoid?)
Same for exercise, I sometimes do but it's not often. (What should I be doing for example?)
Thanks.

The likelihood of any of these things having a real noticeable impact on your height is minuscule. There is no one thing that supplements height growth. It is entirely down to your genes. Generally speaking your height can continue to grow at any stage of puberty - in most males puberty does not in fact end until their mid 20’s. You have a long way to go yet.
