Unless you get a tumour in your pituitary gland in the not too distant future, it’s very unlikely.
Why do you ask? Are any of your relatives around 6’ 5”?

1 inch within a foot. Probably an inch or so left to grow right now maybe you might though unless you are like me where you’ve got told you have the possibility to grow till the age of 25 then I probably doubt it. 21 year old male here 6’0.

6’ 1” is still a rather impressive height.

If we use a normal distribution = 70 inches, σ = 2.5 inches), we can estimate that you are taller than circa 88.5% of men (at least in the UK). Thus, you ain’t doing badly at all.

Yeah that's true, I'm still very much grateful for that. It does get a bit annoying when my mother who's only 5ft4(164cm) calls me short though. Lmao
It's highly unlikely.
I'm 19 and stopped growing more or less at sixteen, if not fifteen, marginally growing very slightly up to my current height of around 6'3/6'4.
I don't get why you would want to be six'five. I say this as a six foot three person. It's near impossible to find anything that fits me in this country, the doorways are very low in this country too, no legroom on buses or public transport/planes, and you have to eat a lot to avoid looking like a stick

We I'm currently staying in Belgium rn so pretty much land of the giants. 6ft3 is also a good height too so I wouldn't mind. I just wanna be able to say that even though I'm one of the shortest, I am still a decent height haha.
