Masturbation is unrelated to height and growth. Masturbation as such is not harmful. However, it must be done correctly and in a healthy way. If it is sone just to avoid stress, or secondary to watching porn, it can risk you for development of sexual problems. Especially. Premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction is very commonly associated with incorrect way of masturbation. Pornography use is very common problem associated with excessive masturbation, and must be avoided. There is no specific frequency of masturbation as healthy, however it should be done in a healthy way.

A high level of testosterone is associated with the initial phase of puberty which causes growth spurt in adolescents. Testosterone is associated with the various physical changes occurring in the body during puberty, especially in males such physical changes include an increase in height, muscle growth, pubic hair growth, and enlargement of the male reproductive organs. There is some evidence that indicates that testosterone levels may rise during masturbation, ejaculation, which is the result of masturbation, does not significantly affects the levels of testosterone, semen ejaculated after masturbation is not the primary source of testosterone. Masturbation does not stunt growth, but excessive masturbation might affect your normal testosterone level and which may affect growth.
Next Steps
You have nothing to worry about, just make sure you don't masturbate excessively.
Health Tips
Excessive masturbation can affect testosterone levels which can affect sexual function later on.
