I'm 16.5 years old and 5f 9, at what age on average do boys stop growing, I hear it's 17 - 18 in general. Hoping I will grow an inch taller. Thankyou?

In brief: Maybe

You can have your doctor check your growth plates to see if they remain open.
All the best and hope you get that additional growth.
