Tricky answer: I assume you mean "weight". If you were at least 19yo, you could calculate a simple body mass index (http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmicalc.Htm) regardless of age & gender. However, when younger than 19yo, then age & gender comes into play. Check out http://www.Cdc.Gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/childrens_bmi/about_childrens_bmi.Html. Normal is 98-144 pounds. Average is in middle.
