Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you came to our community with your question about your height.

The average height for a 14 year old male is 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 7 inches for a 15 year old male. You are a bit above average. How tall are your parents?

Boys tend to grow most quickly between ages 12 and 15. The growth spurt of boys is, on average, about 2 years later than that of girls. By age 16, most boys have stopped growing, but their muscles will continue to develop.

I think you are on track and have no need to worry.
