Please tell me if there is a solution as its kind of depressing and embarrassing to walk with family and friends who have more height.. Thanking you

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

An endocrinologist could help – you need to be examined and investigated for further assessment and assistance. It could be familial / variant

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Having height 5 4 is not bad height so do not feel depressed.
After 20 years further increasing height is not possible due to fusion of epiphyses of long bones.
If some body claims for increasing height, do not believe.
Ok and take care.
