In brief: No

That is silly. Nothing, such as some gimmick of putting a pillow under your knees, will make you grow taller. The only thing that determines your height is your genetics (which you have no control over) and years of proper diet and exercise (to a small extent).
There are no techniques, medicines, herbs, specific exercises, etc.

Your height is determined by genetics.
Get adequate sleep and eat right. We all have different gifts. You may not get the height you desire. Do not let that define the quality of your life.
