In brief: Highly doubt it
A little more information would help: girls or boys (they're different?) what age? What pubertal changes have happened, if any? Chance that it's anything you or anyone else 'caused' is unlikely.

In brief: Puberty
Not usually. Late puberty is usually beyond anyone's control.
The one major exception is if you have an eating disorder or are extremely thin. The body needs a certain amount of lean mass to go into puberty.
