In brief: Average

68", 128lbs. But normal variation is quite wide.
If you have questions see your Physician who knows your son, his parents, and his growth history. Don't get hung up on numbers.

In brief: Growth

As per the CDC growth curves for boys, the 50% percentile for a 15 yo would be about 5'7" and about 125 lbs.

In brief: Why do you ask?

There is no reason to focus on what is "average".
Height and body build vary tremendously. These are determined can genetically. You can help Junior stay trim and physically fit, whatever body type he is naturally blessed with
