I suggest to see a Paediatric Endocrinologist to ascertain if you benefit from growth hormone.
With good nutrition, regular stretching exercises like swimming, basket ball might help.

Height I'd dependant on parents height and on proper nutrition and exercise
However by 16 years all girls and most  boys would have finished their growth. Still you should have a balanced healthy diet, exercise regularly and keep a good posture, and hope for the best.
