hi welcome to Health Care Magic,
how old are you now?
remember that, you can only grow how much you are suppose to grow, that has something to do with your mid parental height. if doctors could do something about it, no doctor would be short.

Welcome to HCM forum
You have not mentioned your age. Height for boys increases till 21 year of age. It also depends upon your hereditary , nutrition. So don't worry just relax eat healthy diet. Do regular exercise sleep well.
