growth during pubert

hey guys, i just wanna ask you a question. right now im around 16 1/2 years old and im 5' 5 3/4".
i havent seen a change in height for myself for a good year (MAYBE year and a half). with my dad at 6' 0" and my mom at 4' 11" im worried that i wont be able to even hit 5' 6" -5' 7". I know alot of people say that boys will grow into their late 20's but i just wanna know if i even have a chance at growing. Also, what are some signs of growing? i heard somewhere that if your knees crack or something you can still grow. ONE MORE THING, i know im going through puberty becuase i'm growing chest/stomach hair along with hair around my sideburns and chin. Is it normal for hair growth to start before height is reached. Sorry to take up your time but i dream of being 5' 10" +, help guys, please!

Dan I was 5'5 until I turned eighteen and I am now 21 and 5'9.5 almost 5'10".

My dad is 5'3 and my mom is 5'2.

It is normal for hair to show up before you reach your maximum height.
