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. You currently stand at 68 while the average would be around 74.5. Hence you still have potential for growth. Also boys can grow in height upto 22-25 years of age.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!
