Hi, Thanks for query.
If you are above 20 years and now in your case as there is fusion of epiphysis with bone increasing of height is not possible.
If some body claims for increasing height, do not believe.
Now there is no chance but for trial go for exercise like jogging, running, jumping ropes, cycling etc.
Take high protein diet.
Ok and bye.
