Don't worry so much my friend, you are still in the puberty years. You have at least 3-5 more years of growing to do. I'm female, but didn't stop growing till I was 23, that was the last 3/4 of an inch. Look at your brother. At 16 he shot up, so wait for it.

Fisrt, stop worrying so much, you still have a lot of time to grow. The first thing to look at is how tall your parents and grandparents are, that will give you an idea of how tall you may be. My parents are 5'4'' and 5'10'' but my grandfather was close to 6 ' tall.  When I was 14 and a half, I was 5'6'' and everyone else taller than me too but within 1 summer, I was eating like a horse at 3 different houses and grew 6 inches in 4 months. If your body wants to grow, it will tell you by your appetite. I am 30 years old now and 6'2'' and stopped growing about 4 years ago. Don't worry, you still have plenty of time to grow.
