In brief: Not specifically
In puberty, the growth centers determine potential for more growth and simple measures help the best.
Follow a healthy diet, rest and exercise.Special diets or exercises will not make anyone grow taller than their genetic potential.If you want to know how much longer you have to grow, an x-ray of the wrist and hand can be analysed for bone maturity/growth potential.

In brief: Genetic Determinatio
Good nutrition, proper exercise and generally good health will help maintain growth.
But ultimately, your pubertal growth is already predetermined genetically.You can not make it be different.
