Can i have a growth spurt at age of 17 ? how?

Possible: Normally, as a male, the growth plates in your long bones have not closed yet (some close as late as age 20-22), so there is some room for growth before that happens.

Can I get a growth spurt at age 17? And how would I know besides getting taller?

Can I get a growth spurt at age 17? And how would I know besides getting taller?

Yes: Growth is pre-programmed into your genes and while some males are done growing at 17 some will continue into their early 20's.

19 yo male im 5'6. Dad=5'11, mom=5'2. Dad inseam=32, my inseam=32. I've never had the pubertal growth spurt. Could my spine still have a growth spurt?

19 yo male im 5'6. Dad=5'11, mom=5'2. Dad inseam=32, my inseam=32. I've never had the pubertal growth spurt. Could my spine still have a growth spurt?

No: The majority of your "growth" is thru your legs. Your growth plates here are more than likely closed which typically occurs by age 18. Your shoulders may still get broader as your collarbone growth plates are some of the last to fuse. Unfortunately you may be on the shorter side. There are worse things in life my friend. ...Read more
