Seventeen year old 5'5 male?

My dad's about 5'10 and my mom's 5'4. I'm probably the shortest man in my whole family since most of them are like 5'8 to 6'0. I only grew about one inch from october to now. Any chance I'll grow to be at least 5'7?

    Maybe maybe not. I grew from 5' to 6'4" in my 15th and 16th year and nothing more than that.

    There is nothing wrong with being under tall.

    You get to find change on the ground before anyone else, you get more of a kinship to dog bcuz you work in their level. You could put a board on your head and work as an auxiliary

    serving table. You could work at an amusement park with a sign pointing 2" above your head saying "You must be THIS tall to ride this ride" AND you could become a world expert on belts :)

    There are worse things than being short.

    Hard to say, you could grow then you may not... if you actually work out and do sports you can probably grow a little more, because your bone platelets won't fuse until your early twenties, and being physically active releases more growth hormone and just tells the body to renew and grow in general.

    If you wanna try to maximize your growth, play sports and perhaps even stretching... but you have to be consistent and do it all the time otherwise it won't make a difference. And do it now your still 17, if you wait after your bone plates fuse no matter what you do, that will be your final height.

So like I reported anywere from 5 and up i think of it truly is too many for a guy who's 17

    I wouldn't worry about it. While your seventeen you still have some time to grow and even if you don't it's not that big of a deal!
