Hello,  I went through your query, an average male can grow up to the age of ~21yrs. Ultimate height you reach depends upon both genetical (father and mother height) and environmental factors,  increase amount of protein you take in your diet,  daily physical activities like jogging, skipping, pull ups,  basketball or tennis all helps to grow height.
