Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
It is unusual to grow at this age.
Usually growth in height ceases at the end of puberty when the growth plate fuses.
In most cases, it is 18 years, but some may continue to grow till early 20s.
I feel you would not grow further.
Still, you can have an evaluation by an endocrinologist.
I hope this information will be helpful.
