I know height questions don't go well on here, but this is more of question out of curiousty then anything else. I have a cousin and he has 15 year old son who's already 6'2. I imagine he has much growing to do and I have friend who's around my age and he's 6'7. So, I was thinking if my cousins son is already 6'2 and only 15 by the time hits his mid to late twenties he could probably be as tall as the friend I have. But, I'm not a guy lol. So, I don't know how long the growing process is for a guy before it just stops and that's the height he'll always be. Hence the question, I'm just curious.
So, how tall were you at age 15? And, how much taller is it possible for my cousins son to get?

I was 5'4 I think, Now 6'4 at 19 - started growing at 16 at 5'6.
How much growth potential he still has can be easily determined by taking an x-ray of his left hand and wrist. This way, a pediatrician can assess his bone age, or his biological age and determine his predicted adult hight with the help of a chart of percentages of how many percent of adult height are already achieved.
Bone age, biological age respectively, is strongly linked to his sexual development.
- What Tanner Stage is he in? Did he hit puberty late or early? - Is he already growing a beard? etc.0
