    It's mostly genetic and yes, some men continue to grow until age 20/21.  You could get and x-ray to see if your growth plates are still open - but it's not a great reason for s-ray exposure.  I'd look at the men in  your family - Dad, brothers, uncle and see what their growth patterns were.  If you are not showing manly musculature and still very lean and "adolescent looking" your testosterone might still kick in with some height growth too.

      It is unlikely that you would grow unless you have an unusual health condition -most if not all young men tend to hit their mature height within a year of their growth plate closures wich is usually between the ages of 16, 17 and 21.  You can, however continue to mature from a muscular perspective.  doing stretching, Pilates, yoga might help your posture and allow you to "appear taller.'

      I want to grow taller, right now i am 24,5.4 inch long and weight 120 lbs. In you post above i read that (If you are not showing manly musculature and still very lean and "adolescent looking" your testosterone might still kick in with some height growth too.)

       

      My father is 5.7 inch tall and mother 5.1 inch.

       

      This looks like mine case, some people call me child when they look at me. How can testosterone kick some growth to my height?

    yes it's very much possible to increase your height after 18. for that, you must follow a diet high on proteins and amino acids, things like fish, skimmed milk, and other vitamin providres like green salads are very helpful. also, try to work on your back, by streching it backwards or skipping. hanging and pull-ups are considered the best to boost height growth. avoid wieghts and fatty foods, and see yourself grow taller. just try it.

      You can lift the bottom end of your bed 2-4 inches which will give you 2" to your spine if done for 3-6 months, this reduces gravity on the spine, this is why astronauts grow 2" there is no gravity to compress their spine down.  breitling replica

    Yes it is possible to gain height even after 18 and even after your growth plates have fused. Lots of people have gained height through combinations of homeopathic medicines which don't have any side effects either. Its a 6 month process but can also take upto a year. I know a person who at the age if 21 was only 5'6" and after taking the medicine for a whole year he turned out to be 5'11". The Shin Bone, Thigh Bone and the spinal cord can grow through proper exercises and proper medicine prescription.
