Hi, my height is bothering me a bit, I just turned 18 some days ago and I'm still around 173-174 cm. My dad is from the south and is around 5"5-5"6. My mom is 5"6. I don't know the exact height of my dads ancestors, but I think around the same height as him. My moms parents were around 6", at least her dad, dno bout her mother.
Is there any chance I can still grow taller, if so, how much do you think is realistic?
Also: Does your grandparents height affect yours?
PS: I've no real facial hair atm, also very little under my arms. My nearsightedness recently got a bit worse which I'm taking as an indication of growth (?).

Guys continue growing until they're around 21ish. I heard somewhere that men also can grow 2-4 inches taller than their father. But that depends on the mother, too. It could also just be nonsense. You're 5'7. That's fine. Not everyone can be 6'. Unless you hit a growth spurt, you'll probably level off at 5'8. Which isn't bad.
As for your hair/sight issue...I seriously doubt your ability to see has anything to do with your height.
I hear your mother's father determines if you will go bald when you get older, height, they say, is more of a father thing. My dad was 5'4 all through high school, and after graduation, that summer he shot up to 6'1. I doubt this happens for all men though.0
