Is it. Possible to increase height at 18? From years i ve been hearing that height of boys increases till 21.
Depends on bone age: The potential additional length anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms, legs, fingers)called growth plates.

No: Body height is determined by genetics, hormonal influences, and dietary intake (calcium, vitamin d, and protein) during childhood and adolescence.
