    6'2 Here and I doubt the average is around 177. I see to many guys around my height some even taller then me. Some people tell me I'm tall but to be honest I feel really short/normal compared to most guys.

    Do you actually know how tall 6 foot is in relation to yourself or do you just suspect that you know because of what other people report their heights to be?

    People think I'm at least 6'2" and maybe 6'3", but I'm 6'1". I only discovered this when I measured myself since my mate who is quite clearly a fair bit taller than me insisted he was no more than 6'4".

    I've seen / heard people 2 or 3 inches shorter than me claim they are 6 foot, and this is why I believed I was taller than 6'1". If you want to know, you have to have measured yourself

    I still think us 6foot+ers are a minority

    When do males stop growing ? Because I'm 5 ft 5 male (from Pakistan) but only 16. Don't think I've gone through a growth spurt because my height has been increasingly since the age of 12. Does diet really affect your height ? If so what foods should you eat to provide growth.

    Pakistani males don't grow tall on average you won't even make it to 5'10". That's quite pathetic tbh.

    if you total all the ethnic minorities together, their heights are bound to bring the average height of the UK down by an inch.
    But then black people are much taller than British whites on average.

    I think its really important that we realise these are averages. We don't know the sample size nor where the data was selected. Any height is a normal height if its yours!
