Height: Have you had your height documented from an early age. If so at what age did you stop growing. If you are still growing, albeit slowly, and are much shorter than your parents a visit to your doctor would be appropriate. That said, well before age 47 your bone growth should have stopped and there is little likelihood of getting taller
