If I marry a person having small height brothers, will this disorder come in my child?

Hi! I m getting married to a person who is the 3 son in the family. His 2 elder brothers are short height(4.5inch) inherited from birth. This is not seen at any other instance in their family history. Would like to discuss, that can this disorder come in my children if i get married to the 3rd son of the family who has a normal height(5.10inch).

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Your concern is about dwarfism. I suggest you should not worry too much and think too much into it.

Human genes play an important part in making a new offspring. Normally the dominant genes either from mother or father determines the behavior or body features of offspring.

It is very difficult to correctly say whether the offspring of your marriage, will be short or not. But it should not happen because you and your 'would be' are normal in height.

Therefore please don't think too much into it.
I hope I was able to clarify your doubt. I can be of further assistance if you desire so.
Good luck.
