Height: If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late.

Height: If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Boys complete puberty by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents' height).

Most done by 18: Linear growth can continue until the growth centers of the log bones have closed. For most males this stops at 17-18.In a few this can remain open longer, but growth is generally slowing. An x-ray of the wrist and hand can identify representative growth centers and redict the remaining growth potential.
