Hi there,
Height is purely determined by genetics,so there is no 'ideal' height for a given age.
weight is dependent on your frame(to find out your frame use Dr Radha's method above)
Once you have found out your height & frame, find out your ideal weight with the chart given here

Radiologist Dr. Radha Narayanan's  Response
The weight and height are not uniform for all depends whether you are small frame, medium frame or large frame.The easy way to find your frame type is -put your thumb and your middle finger around the smallest part of your wrist, if your thumb and middle finger do not touch, you have a large frame. If they just touch, you have a medium frame. If they overlap, you have a small frame. Let me know the results.
