I think boys stop growing around 17 or 18, so yeah there's still time.

How tall are your parents and grandparents, by the way?

I think I kept growing till about 18-19, not as rapidly as I did in my first teen-age years, but... so I would say that you do stand a chance :)

I'm sure you can still grow taller.
I have a friend who was called "shrimp" at your age and now he's up to 190cm!

Yeah, I'm 175 cm now. So that's not too bad. And the good thing is, when you go to a supermarket, people will never ask you to take things for them from the top-shelf ;)

josh is right.

it depends on genetics, when you started puberty, and how active youve been in your life [this mostly applies to women thou]

You can still grow artificially...you can get an operation on your legs to stretch the bones and you'll get taller! I saw it on tv, when they did it to midgets....I don't need it cause I'm already 6'2 and I'm only 14! (almost 15!)

I've seen it, and no thanks I'm rather be short than be potentially crippled for the rest of my life. :eek:
