Hi tophan;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If your height is 5'6" then 58 kg is normal weight and the range is 56-71 kgs still if you want to increase then please have diet containing high protein and carbohydrates and exercise regularly and you should gain weight.As for height sorry the height of a male increases upto 21 yrs there after it is not possible because fusion of bones has already taken place so now the height will not increase.
