Can jaw bone grow after bone grafting?

Yes: Not sure exactly what's being asked, but bone grafting is typically done to induce healing of bone at the site of a bony defect - most commonly, a bony fracture that has not healed. So yes, in that type of situation, the jaw bone would be expected to grow (heal) through the bone graft, to repair the area of bony defect.
