Will I be able to grow to my dad’s height?



I’m of Asian heritage, and I’m currently 14 years old, 168 cm tall (or 5′ 6), and 56 kg. I just hit Tanner stage 4, or at least that’s what the calculator told me. My dad is 171 cm (5 ‘7.5) and my mom is 167 cm (5 ‘6).

I started puberty at 11.5 years old. I know this because when I was 12 years old I noticed that I started growing a few soft hairs around the base of my penis. Since then I have only grown from 160 cm (5 ‘3) to my current height, which is around 3 inches of growth in the past 2 years. I haven’t grown in the last 3 months.

I have a lot of hair on my pubic area that forms an upside-down triangle shape but no hair has grown inside of my thighs. I have noticeable hair on my upper lip but that’s because my family is a hairy one. My dad also started having fine but noticeable hair on his lip since he was 12.

Judging by these facts, can I grow to 173 cm (5′ 8), or at least to my dad’s height?


Please realize that I can’t see what you see and I only know what you’ve told me. From your description, I would guess you are in the middle of stage 3 and that you have not had your growth spurt yet.


Ok, thanks for the answer, sir. Even though it’s just speculation, it definitely gave me an idea of how much I would grow now. 😀
