Thanks for your time.

hi there, ones height is a result of genetic inheritance and so you may attain a maximum height of say 5-7 to 5-9. Usually males keep growing till the age of 18-20 and so probabely you may grow and inch or two but not more than that.Using hormones or any other drugs for growth is not really recommended and should not be sought for until and unless there is a proven deficiency of the particular hormone. You may visit your local doctor for the other problems such as long fingers etc. In view of delayed puberty you may visit an andrologist who will rule out any deficiency problem and treat you accordingly. Take care.
