Dear Saba

In normal circumstances, bone growth ( and hence, height) ceases during the age of 15-18 years. Hence there is no chance you can increase your height at this age.

A 170cm (5' 6") height is a pretty decent height for a person of Asian origin and you should not be worried about it. I can see that at 63kg, you have an average frame which ia also very good. Maintain a decent physical frame to appear good.

On a side note, wear clothes with longitudinal stripes and avoid horizontal ones, which makes you appear taller than you are. You can also opt for thicker soles in your footwear.
