I'm 5'7(170cm) and I'm 16, my dad is 5'10(177cm) and my mom is 5'4, am i going to reach my father's height until my 20th? cuz my dad is perfectly average, i don't think so because my doctor told me that my growth plates are closed (my legs), but some guys say my upper body will grow taller and my father says that he was short too but he started growing when he was 18 or 19 years old, so is it possible to grow taller? I'm 16 by the way

you are only 16... You are likely going to grow more1

You'll probably be taller. When I was 16 my doctor told me I was going to be 5'9, mostly cause I hadn't grown much that year. I was a little upset.
Now I am 19 and just under 6'1. Your doctor is probably wrong unless you have a hormone deficincey.1
