I know it's a special case because my dad is from Albania and my mom is danish, both around 5"6 - 5"7. My moms dad though, was around 6"1. My dads parents were same as him (I think).
I just turned 18 some weeks ago. I'm around 5"8, 173-174 cm. Seems like I'm still growing. Is it biologically possible for me to reach around 180 cm or 6" when I'm done growing?
It's bugging me cause I know all da girls dig the tall guys and I myself feel pretty petite next to other men in general. Is it possible that I have the "growth gene" thing from my granddad?

It does happen rarely, but only rarely. Typically we're done growing around 16 to 18, sometimes even earlier. All you can do is just watch and measure to see if there is any progress.
If you're not growing, you could always travel to Russia for that height increasing surgery, but I warn you it is painful. They do a series of controlled fractures on your legs, and as the bone heals, the leg bones get longer. Results as much as 18cm have been achieved with this procedure, though you do have to go to Russia to get it.0
