18 and almost 19(in four months ) , can I grow taller , my brother , 5 years younger to me is almost my height(165 cms)?

18 and  almost 19(in four months ) , can I grow taller , my brother , 5 years younger to me is almost my height(165 cms)?

May be too late but: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing around age 18- but occasionally some will grow until age 21 or so. Taking measures to increase your production of growth hormone might help, but if your growth plates have closed (like most 18 yo's) then you've reached your max.

Doubt it: Future growth is dependent on whether the growth centers in your long bones remain open. Most have closed by 18 yo in males. If your family has a history of delayed growth, these may be open and growth possible.An x-ray of your wrist and hand can detect your bone maturity.If the index is consistent with >18, you are done, if 14 you could grow more but this is not realistic. ...Read more

Hard to say: If you are male, the typical growth spurt is between 13-16. If there are other males in the family that continue their height growth after 18, you may as well.
