Gigantisme: If you are growing too much- more than expected, meaning that your parents are not tall, but you are very tall and continue to grow- your condition may be abnormal and you should go to see your doctor for more evaluation.

If they are closed you are finished growing taller.Most males are done at 17-18, a few with delayed bone maturity continue to grow slightly. ...Read more
16-20 years: Most men finish their height growth by age 20 years. Rarely, there may be growth after that, & often growth is over before then.

Will stop soon: It is rare to still be growing at age 21 but rarely men do continue to grow until about age 21. But it is the natural course of things that you will stop growing very soon.
