Growth: Some boys will grow until 21. It's is difficult to say, facial hair is not the only sign of puberty. If you started your growth spurt, at 11 or so, your growth will stop faster than if you started your growth spurt at 14. Sorry I can't be more specific. Your doctor will have a growth chart, and can plot you on it to estimate your final height.
