Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us with your concern about your growth.

Boys tend to show the first physical changes of puberty between the ages of 10 and 16. They tend to grow most quickly between ages 12 and 17.

Boys grow about 4 inches (about 10 centimeters) during their year of maximum growth. 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.

It's not unusual for teens to have their own concerns about how they're growing and how they look.Boys tend to be more concerned with their height and muscle development.

Anonymous, you have nothing to worry about. This is your growth spurt.
