You must meet a doctor (endocrinologist who deals with hormones responsible for growth of body). However boys growth has a sudden spurt from 15 years onwards and so it is not to despair but wait. Girls spurt more between 13 to 15 and boys 15 to 18 this is decided by body chemistry dependent on growth hormones made in the body
