Height stopped growing. Why? What can help?

I am 18 years old. My height is 5'7 1/2. I haven't even gained a single inch after I was 16. Whereas my friends gained 3-4 inches and are now taller than me! Has my height stopped growing? or is there any way to increase height now? My mother is 5'6 and my father is 5'11. My brother is also taller than me. I am shortest male in the family and it is very embaressing! Please is there any way by which I can gain 2-3 inches???
