Predicted mid parental height for you is in the range of 165 to 175 cm.

The expected final height of a male with these parents is the average of both parents plus 5 cm. Here that would be 169cm. An x-ray of the wrist/hand can be used to track bone maturity. As long as the growth centers are open, more growth is possible. When your yearly growth slows to less than 4 cm/yr you are slowing down. Less than 2 cm/yr and you are near or at the end.
