Hello..., your height  depends on average  height  of your parents..  Once maturation occurs growing end of bones fuses and one cannot  grow  further after that growth cessate usually at the age of 18 to 21. So you still have chance to grow..  Don't  try medication for growth  they won't work. Cycling, swimming, skipping, stretching exercise may help you.. continue it...  Have proteinaceous food items...
