Hi Manish;

welcome to HealthcareMagic

The height of a male increases upto 21yrs max ;by this time the bones get fused so there is no increase after that.Height is related to genes in a family so the height of a person is always proportional to the height of his parents and grand parents.There is no medicine available to increase it.
