In brief: Platform shoes

If you entered puberty the same time as your friends & your bone maturity is that of a 20 yo there is little you can do to increase your height.
A single x-ray of your left hand can be assessed for bone maturity.If 20, you are done growing, if bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches.There are no magic solutions if your growth centers r closed.
