You are normal: Some people are tall like you & others are much shorter & still within normal range. Penises also come in wide range of normal sizes from smaller normal, like yours to larger normal like others.50 - 70% of men yearn to have larger penis. Penises seen in porno movies are the exception & many don't work that well in real life.Medications, equipment & surgeries to elongate penises are all fake news.
