Hello
height is a matter of genetics/hereditary. So at this age your height groeth will be stopped . so dont worry 5.1 is not bad height.its OK. Dont try any drugs in the maket which promise for increasing in height. none of them work out.
Take care

hi,
height is determined by genetic and familial factor and height gains up to the the puberty not after that as epiphysis is closed.You should look at your parents height and your ht will be around that.
thanks.

hi;
As you are 16 yrs you still have at least 5-6 yrs for height to increase.Right now you are 5'1" & definitely it will increase till you are 21-22 yrs old .No you are not dwarf ;its just a teasing thing don't worry.Keep in mind the height of your parents even you will achieve the same height or may be more.I think you are Indian ;if you are then remember people like SachinTendulkar ;Aamir khan;for that matter Salman khan are also short but they have achieved respect like Legends.so don't worry be happy.
thanks
