Varies a lot: Boys usually stop growing after their initial growth spurt where you grow the fastest. This is different depending on when you started growing and also it is important to look at your father and whether he grew early in his teens or later. Some boys continue to grow well into their college years. Look at the height of both of your parents and you can get an idea of how tall you can be
