Does your head (craniofacial skeleton) grow or change as you get taller?

In brief: Depends on age

The skull is composed with an elaborate collection of growth centers that essentially push away from each other as the skull volume increases with age.
By the age of 9 most of the suture lines of the skull start to fuse & there is little added increase.Since the adolescence growth spurt occurs in the mid to late teens, there will be a point where u grow taller but your head is done.
