No: Nothing will likely change your height. Your epiphyses plate will fuse before age 25.Enjoy your self irrespective of your height.

No: Stretching cannot make you taller. Your height is determined genetically. You can increase your stature by focusing on being the best you can be physically and mentally. Good luck!

Your bones: Have completed their growth so your skeleton won't grow any taller. Stretching will help you stay limber and can be a good thing but it won't add inches. Hope this helps you. Peace be with you.
