What would be a good prediction of my adult height?

Last updated on August 28, 2023


I started puberty around 14.5 at 4’10, so I am a late bloomer. I am 16 and 7/8 months currently. I was told a few months ago that my bone age was delayed and I was 14/15 (probably about to turn 15), so I’m assuming it’s delayed by 1.5-1.8 years. Currently, I am around 5’5, I did the Tanner stage multiple times and got in the range between 3.7-3.9. My father is 5’7 and my mother is 5’5. I was told at 12 my height prediction was 5’8 to 5’9 based on the Tanner stage information. What can be a good prediction of height?


You can use the various calculators on the Predicting Your Adult Height page. I ran several of them and got values in the 5’8 to 5’10 range.
