Guys don't stop growning until they are around 20 so you have a chance to get taller. If your dad is 5'7'' then you should be around that or close to, give or take a few inches. But then again I know people who have two really short parents and they are over 6' cos it was a throw back to a great great grandfather so you never know. Have you had a big growth spurt yet? If not then you have something to look forward to. :)0

I've known people who towered over their parents. I'm significantly taller than my mom. My one friend is taller than both of his parents by over a foot.
So I mean it's possible, though judging by the fact that you're 17 now may not be probable.
There was a study once that found that parents who were born/grew up in more geographically distant places from one another had taller children than those from the same hometowns. Things like that indicate that height isn't necessarily determined by how tall your parents are.0
Both of your parents are pretty short so you probably won't get much taller than 5'8. There's a chance you could get taller, but I wouldn't bet any money on it.0
yeah you aren't going to be tall. Your family genes have only short men and women0

According to every doctor I've spoken with in my life, many, if not most, boys grow a bit in college (18-20 years old). My stepfather went from 5'9" in high school to about 6'1" after college. It's hard to give a concrete answer as to what your final height may be, though. The good news is, you have a pretty good chance of growing a bit more.1
i don't think you are growing more than 2 inches...maybe 3 inches, other than that sorry hommie1
You'll never be tall enough for most girls on this site. Better start getting used to it early.0
i haven't grown since I was 17 but there could be some hope for you. everyones different really0
