Brief Answer:
No, stretching wont make you taller.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Around the ago of 18 bones loose theirs ability to grow. So after that age it is impossible to increase height by any natural methods including stretching. There is a surgical method of enlarging bones by fracturing them and stretch with special instrument, but I`m pretty sure you do not wan to do that.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
