Is my penis a normal size at 15?

I'm 15 going on 16, and my penis hasn't grown at all over the past few years. I live a pretty healthy and active lifestyle, I've also lost most of my body fat. I am going through puberty and my penis did go from 2" to 4 -4 1/2. The thing that I'm worried about is how it's had zero growth over the past few years. The articles I've read usual say live and eat healthy and you should see growth, but I haven't. I dunno if I've got the millimeter Peter gene or I'm missing something. Puberty might have just stopped down there at the moment, but I don't know. Could someone give me their thoughts? Thanks!!!

Welp, this is one of the things that a lot of guys worry about but is beyond any of our control.  Genetics play a role and we can't do anything about that. When the time comes for sex, most women don't care all that much.  It's the motion of the ocean and all of that.  Next time you have a physical, you can ask about this and perhaps get your testosterone levels checked.  But try not to worry.  Most males continue to grow in their teens.

I think it's  as you said, genetics, but I do know that the men in my family, their testosterone levels drop in their late 30ths. I don't think this could happen 20+ years too early.
Testosterone levels can be off at any time and that is correctable.  But it is probably a lot to do with just your normal size and it is something we just deal with.  It's like women that think all men like larger breasts.  Not all do.  Regardless of breast size, there are plenty of men who will date them.  But they worry about it.  You don't need to be too concerned.  A woman who loves you will love that part of you too.  If you have a hormonal imbalance, that's easy to get checked.  
By the way, have you ever heard of kleinefelter syndrome?  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/klinefelter-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20353949  Now, that is unlikely but none the less a real thing that people may have.  They find out by doing blood work checking your hormone levels as well as chromosomal analysis.  Again, adding hormones is one of the therapies.  Ask your doctor about these things.  And sorry it's stressful.  
From what I've read up, I have a lot of the symptoms. I need to go to the doctor anyway so I'll talk to him about it. Thanks for your thoughts.
