In brief: No, but
Height is how you carry yourself, proper posture, wearing the right clothes for your body habitus.
Stand straight, hold your head square, don't slump, look confident, shoulders back, head a bit back (almost like trying to make a double chin): you'll look taller, tougher, send a message to that oncoming intruder that says 'don't mess with me'. Yes, stretch away. Perception is everything.
