Am i suffering from Hypogonadism?

Hello! I am 25 year old male who looks like 15-17. I've had gynecomastia since i was 15 and also havent grown since that age. Tbh my body havent really changed at all. My bones didnt grow larger or increase of muscles though i trained alot and went through a mandatory 2 years of national service. I still look very young and feel very depressed because of this.I researched about this online and found about hypogonadism. Is that the case or am i suffering from something else?  

Thank you!

Contrary to common opinion, gynecomastia in guys your age is usually due to an excess of testosterone. It's a sign of masculinity, not of femininity. Early epiphesis closure results in cessation of bone growth, also a sign of high testosterone level. Gynecomastia is guys your age usually disappears after a few months, but since yours has lasted 2 years it may be permanent. Nothing to be ashamed of.
