I would really like to increase my height I'm 17 and am about 5ft 5-6 inches tall and weigh around 68 kg. I would like to increase it by like 2 inches and was wondering what could I do? In my family boht my parents are relatively short mum around 5ft 2 and dad 5ft 6 or so and I don't want to be of that height as majority of my friends are taller and I just think I'd look better.

Nothing. Unless you want to go and get your genetics altered? Just working on your posture is the best thing you can do.

depends on whether his growth plates have closed, if they've closed then their useless. Only way to find out really is to go to a doctor, experienced ones can tell by touch otherwise ur gonna need an Xray

First i'd suggest learning how to use full stops...you missed a few

Why don't you just grow really big hair?! I mean you could add like a foot with a huge mohawk!

...and think how menacing youu would look! :O

There are no available solution for height growth. Nutrition is the key during your puberty growth.

The link below explains the topic.

Visit a doctor, there is a test (scanning your fingers) to check if you are still growing.
I don't think there is a solution to increase height growth, but good nutrition and physical activity would not do any harm.
