Thanks for posting your query.
Height is defined by genetics and it inherited from parents. It is also influenced by environmental and personal factors. In few cases it can be treated by exercise and HGH when low height is due to lack of growth hormones. Growth plates are closed between age 16 to 21, after the closure of growth plate it is impossible to gain more height.
You may try exercise like hanging and playing basket ball, but change in height is not guaranteed.
Hope i have answered your query.
Take Care!
