Thanks for the query

Yes it is possible for you to grow taller. Meet an endocrinologist and ask him about growth hormones. But studies have shown that the final height u reach does not vary, it is just that the rate might increase a little. It does come at a cost of side effects.
I suggest u just eat healthy, exercise regulary and wear clothes intelligently

have a healthy living
