growing
hi, i'm age 14 and i just done done going to the doctors and they said my growth plates in my legs have closed up and i'm done with my growing. but, my dad is 6ft 4in and my mom was about 5ft 8in when she was her tallest. right now i'm 5ft 7in and i'm wondering if it's possible for me to keep growing with my spine and get taller that way. i'm as skinny as i could be but my hips are still pretty wide so i'm wondering if i could grow with my shoulders and get about 5ft 10in?

Hi there!

The height of a person is mostly dependent on ones genes and a few environmental factors. The average height of boys can be calculated by (Father's Height + Mother's Height + 13) / 2) cm. Some growth plates fuse in the knee at 14 years or age while most fuse at around 18-21 years of age normally and it is still possible to increase in height.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
