Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Height is usually based on genetics, unless a person has an illness or poor diet. Males usually stop growing by age 18. You have not said how old you are.

Hello again

I'm sorry, that was my mistake. I meant to say you have not said how tall you are!

A man in Bolivia, for example, who is 5'9" would be considered quite tall. In the Netherlands a man would be considered tall at 6'3". There are cultural and genetic considerations for what is "tall".

Hello earner

We can't tell anyone if they have stopped growing - how would be know that?

But most males have stopped growing at your age so it's likely you are finished growing.
