Hi, was wondering what the average height for a 15 year old male is. I am 5'9.6" and 214 lbs ( mostly muscle ). Is it normal for me to be this big.

In brief: That is good

This is a little bit taller than most guys your age and that is a plus.
Stay trim and ignore everything else that you read about ideal weight. Stay in the habit of lifetime fitness / exercise and enjoy yourself.
