Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description of the problem. Human height increases when bone length increases nd it is a natural process. Muscles do not have any role in height increasing. Human being's bone continues to grow uptoo the age of around 22 or 23 and then it stops. Growth spurt takes place after 19 or 20. So you have three years more to grow. Why anxious over it now?

Secondly heredity also plays a vital part in determinig a persons height. Analyze your hereditary height then you can decide yourself. As of now there are no safe artificial ways to increase height.

Please learn to be happy with what you have, not to be unhappy with what you do not have or like.
I hope I could answer your question satisfactorily. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
