Have my growth plates already fused? I'm a 20yo male and I'm 5'7[x-ray]

Here is an x-ray of my right wrist. http://imgur.com/a/Cts4B

Is there any growing left for me to do or am I stuck at 5'7? Thanks for any help. :D

Hi Abhi, typically the growth plates in males fused by the age of 18 years. Thanks for making the X-ray available. From what I can make out, your growth plates have clearly fused !!  But 5'7" is not a bad height to have ..is it ? :) ..well unless you plan to go for modelling or something
