Height is genetically determined and you cannot increase your height at this point of time. Epiphyseal closure which is completed at around 18 years of age results in stoppage of growth in males. No hormones would increase your height and on the contrary might be detrimental to your health! There are a few surgical procedures but these are not done because of the fear of complications.
