Is my height okay?(please read the details) ?

i'm 16 years old male and my height is exactly 170 CMs (66.93 inches), is it normal? and another thing is: can I grow taller until my 20th even if my growth plates are closed? because I visited the doctor and he told me that my growth plates are closed.. i'm asking cuz we're going to move to Canada and I want to know what is the normal height for Americans or Canadians? Will I be known as short if I come to Canada or America?

Thanks in advice

  • He probably meant your growth plates that belong to your lower body were closed. Mine closed around my 16th as well (at the time, I was 188cm). I'm now 18 and currently sitting at 196cm. That wasn't my legs that grew, it was my upper body, so it is quite possible that you can grow 2-3 inches (unless you are at your predicted height, so maybe 1~).

    5'5 (170cm) is below average in america. You can research online where it stands on a Canadian scale.

    by the way, height doesn't matter as long as you have a good personality.

    • yes, that was the same about my father, he started growing tall when he was 19 years old (he has 177cm height) .

  • Buddy, who cares, stop bitchying about your appearance and strive a little.

  • Not on the tall side, but I know plenty of guys who are this height and don't grow anymore.
