Dear friend your body kind and your height is genetic in nature.......... If your parents are tall there is lots of chance for you to be a taller person...... And vice versa..... But don't worry indulge your in outdoor activities more........

Final height gained by a person is a combination of genetics (how tall your parents are and which dominant gene you inherited), diet and exercise. Using height charts for children below 16yrs, height can be predicted but that also has an error margin. At your age considering your gender, it is unlikely you will grow another 2 inches, though some amount of growth is possible. Continue to have a healthy lifestyle and good diet.
Next Steps
Have a healthy lifestyle and good diet.
Health Tips
There are no quick fix solutions and please do not believe when people talk about surgery.

Hello..Well the secondary ossification centres of the bone close by 21 so you stop gaining height after that...You can do exercises as recommended by your trainer..Do not do anything just by greeting inspired by someone...Thank you

Hello there,,,,,,,first and foremost you need to understand that every person is unique,,,also there is huge dominance of gene play which gives us our external and systemic characters,,,,,hence we have people like shaqil o neal or usain bolt with altogether different excellence and also people like sachin tendulakar who are kings in their own field. You can try certain exercises,,,,like stretching ,climbing and a good nutritious diet,,,,however there is no established study which states that exercises helps in increasing height.
Next Steps
keep on with your active and healthy lifestyle....and dont concentrate much on your height,,,,it might increase or it might not
Health Tips
beware of teleproducts which promise to increase your height.....that is pure business and sham... regarding surgeries...there are conflicting results and i would definately not recommend it. Do resort back to me if you have any doubts regards & take care
