Hi,
Thanks for query,
Your masturbation has no relation to your height.
You have still 3 years to grow as your bones end hypophysis fusion with epiphysis usually stops around the age of 18 years.
So nothing to worry as you have developed secondary sex character like masturbation your growth is in normal way.
Thanks.
