Is 4'8 short for a 15 year old boy?
People call me short, sometimes even a midget because I'm 15 years old, a boy, and 4'8 (142 cm). Is this kinda short or not?

Yes. Are your parents shorter than average? Even so, there is no way you can have reached puberty if you are that height and that is late. You should, even with very short parents be somewhat over 5 ft. You need a dr to run hormone tests. You may need medication. If you don't go now, it becomes less likely any medicine will work, so get checked out.

Very short! By 15 you should be adult height, so anywhere between 5'4-6'2 (depending on your parents heights). To put this in prespective, my neice who is 6, is around 4'2, and you are nearly 3x her age, with only 6 additional inches to show for it.
