? good height ?: There is no such thing as a good height. There is a range of average, but even if you are outside that range, doesn't mean your height is bad. At 16, you are getting pretty close if not already at your final adult height. In the usa, average adult male height is 5-8'. But it also depends on your race, your genetics, your nutrition and general health. If you have concerns, talk to your doc.
