In brief: Depends

At a listed age of 48, you will not grow taller whatever you drink.
If your question is about someone else, it is hard to say. The US fascination with milk is not common to all cultures & they grow up fine. In the US, there are many milk allergic kids who get their nutrition from other sources and achieve normal or above normal height.

In brief: Yes

Milk is not the growth potion that makes you taller. It healps, but you can get your nutrition from many sources.
