Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Relax,height of an individual depends of various factors.
Genetic factor-height depends on height of parents and grandparents.
Dietary factor

I suggest you to take balanced diet rich in proteins.Avoid all kind of junk food.
Exercise regularly.Do stretching exercises.

I do not recommend any growth supplements.

Be proud of what you are!!
God bless..
