Why are you worried about your height? If you're worried, seeing a GP could help subside your worries?

You're pretty tall for your age!


breathe. it's just a bad day, not a bad life.

I've heard, but don't quote me, that boys can grow until they're 21 and girls grow until around the time they start their period. So, there's a good chance you'll still grow, but it also depends on genetics and how tall your parents are.

I have the exact same issue, except am 166cm and 13.
Are you taller than your dad? If you aren't, you can still grow taller!
And if you already are.. then maybe try playing basketball? I've heard that jumping makes you taller, haha.


We all have issues.

Re: My height - August 10th 2017, 11:12 PM

Your height is pretty decent. The men in my family range from about 6 feet to 6'2. My boyfriend is about 6'3 and I cannot tell the difference between him and the person who is 6 feet.

I know basketball players tend to be taller than 6 feet but there have been some basketball players who haven't fit that height at all. I did a search and there was one player who was like 5'3 or something.

I suppose what I am trying to say is that height is only one factor in someone being a successful basketball player.
