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.1
