At What Age Do Males Normally Have Their Growth Spurt
Generally, 14-17. : Personal story. At my bar mitzvah, age 13, the picture with my 16 year old brother showed a little squirt that barely came up to len's nipples. At 15, coming home from summer camp, i got a horrendous case of mono (thanks, phoebe) that put me in bed for months, relapsed at xmas, put me in bed for another 2 months. I went to bed 5'2" and got up at 5'8"! by age 18, i was 5'11". Life is strange. ...Read more
Not often: By 17 most males see their growth centers begin to close and growth slows.An x-ray of the hand can be analysed to see what stage the growth is entering. Some "late bloomers"continue slow steady growth into their early 20's, but most stop at 18. ...Read more
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. I would not recommend taking an expensive drug like human growth hormone to get this done, low yield at this age ...Read more

My son's 14 175cm. I'm 180 my wife's 168. My son's only grown 6cm in the last 2 years. His skeletal age was 16 at 13. Will he have a 2nd growth spurt?
What was the latest age you saw someone have a noticeable growth spurt in height? What could possibly cause a spurt in late 30s and another around 40?
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. A single x-ray of your wrist and hand can be assessed for open growth centers, which would correlate with more growth, while closing or fused growth centers would mean you are done. ...Read more
Unlikely: It is unlikely that gaining weight faster after your age of growth spurt will make you grow faster. It will make you get overweight. The only way to know if you have growth potential is by getting an x ray of your left hand, called bone age. Growth hormone is indicated under certain circumstances. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
