Hello,

If you are age 20 then it is expected that you have completed your growth in height

If you wish you could consult an orthopedic specialist to confirm this ...

Xrays might be considered to confirm closure of growth plates but growth in height is usually finished in females by age 16 and makes by age 18 ...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Best regards,
