How to get rid of puffy nipples and till what age my height will grow?

Hello, I'm a 17 year old boy and I was wondering if I need surgery. Since I was 14 I think or 15 I've had puffy nipples they are always soft and show through my clothes and its really annoying as it makes me look like I have boobs. I am 8 stone and go to the gym regularly. I've only just started to grow properly as in 5ft 5. Please help me. How can I get rid of them? The only time they are not puffy is when I'm cold. Another question I have is why am I soon short. And will I grow more I'm scared as boys younger than me are so much taller. My parents are average height but my brothers are all 5ft 9 to 5ft 11. Thank you and please help.

Thank for asking to HCM
I really can understand your problem, nothing worry about the size and texture of your nipple this is common in this age, and will come around with time no need for treatment either medical or surgical, your height is also okay still there is little chance for increasing the height, no need to be over conscious, take care and have nice day.
