Will i grow?

Hi , I am 14 years old and around 5 feet 7.5 inches(171cm). my dad is around 6 feet 2 inches(188cm) , my mum is 5 feet 5 (166cm). I have been the same height for nearly 7-8 months now. A lot of my friends who were shorter than me are reaching my height if not becoming taller. Will i grow anymore. P.S. I think because I hit puberty early I had a growth spurt when I was around 12 because I used to be around 5 feet 4 inches when I was 10-12 years old.The reason I say i hit puberty early is because I am starting to develop a proper beard.

It is normal to have random growth spurts and moments of little or no growth. By the time you are 18/19, is when you have reached your fully grown height. It may be that in a year from now, you have grown so much, or maybe in a few years. Nothing to worry about
Typically, men reach the height of their dad and women reach a high between their mum and dad. I wouldn't worry- still plenty of time left! Often guys have a big growth spurt around 16/17
