welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes you are right that the height of male grows upto 21 years so even yours will grow.The height of a person depends and is always in proportion to the height of his parents so your height will be like your parents as it is genetic.Also please understand that the gorwth takes place in spurts during the growing years so even you will grow.Please continue exercise and healthy diet and you will grow till 21 yrs of age.
