Hello,, sir it's all genetics you have got your average height for life time,, since growth plate responsible for growing height closes by age of 21yrs in male,, nothing can be done after this age to increase height. There are no medicines which can do that or external supply of growth hormone also will not help. So please don't worry about your height, as nothing can be done to it.
