No need to worry, if he is taking a proper diet and he is physically active then he will gain his ideal height. Heights of any kids also depends on his or her genetics. So, if his genetics are tall then surely he will get his ideal height. Actually boys get their height suddenly at the age of 13-16.
Next Steps
Give him a balanced diet.
Health Tips
Give him a healthy balanced diet no need to restrict any food except junk food.

Hello I appreciate your efforts to include good healthy food for his growth. There are few things which needs to be taken care of by us professionals who are trained to help you in that aspect. For which it is important to seek a personal consultation. It is not ethically right for us to give out medicines or supplements here without knowing about the patient's lifestyle and medical history which can only be done during a consultation.
