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.

Genetics plays a major role here, so knowing when related males finished their growth would help in predicting one's ultimate height. ...Read more

I am 21 years old. my height is 6.2. i am still growing. I am asking about how to stop the growth?

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. Our height is mostly determined by genetics and I know of nothing other than the passage of time that will stop you from growing. ...Read more
