Time: Roy, men do most of their growing between the ages of 15 and 25. Girls hit their peak growth much sooner. You are just beginning your time of peak growth. Be patient! There is no way to predict what your maximum height will be, but in most cases, your max height will be similar to your parents'. Hope this helps!
