How tall do you think I’ll get? Will my voice get deeper?


Hello minister,

I hope your day is going well. I wanted to contact you about some questions I have about my development. I’m 14 years old. I stand at 5’5. I weigh 110 pounds. My tanner stage is 3.4-3.5. I have a small bush of pubic hair that is straight sparse hairs. It looks like Stage 3 and Stage 2 at the same time. My dad noticed that I have grown a lot because he’s only 5’7 so we are basically the same height. My mom is 5’3. By the way, my torso is very small and my sitting height is 32 inches.

I wanted to know how tall you think I will be when I’m done developing. I am hoping for 5’10 because I barely started my growth spurt.

Also, my voice has been cracking a lot. I was talking during a game with my friends and my voice would crack nearly every couple of minutes. My voice has cracked at school and people laugh at me. Does this mean my voice is going to get deeper? It has gotten slightly deeper but not a lot. I can see a small Adam’s apple in my throat


I used several of the adult height estimators and they gave values between 5’9 and 5’10, though one gave an estimate of 6’0. So it sounds likely that you will be in the neighborhood of 5’10 by the time you finish growing.

Your voice cracking indicates that your vocal cords are getting longer. Longer cords mean a deeper tone. The cracking is because your brain hasn’t figured out exactly how taut to hold your cords to keep the tone pure. It will especially make mistakes when you are distracted, such as during gameplay. As it settles down, your voice pitch will become lower.
