How tall are your mother and grandmothers?

Not that tall..my mom 5ft 5 and my grandmother is really short about 5ft, but one of my cousins is 6ft2 and his mother is shorter than mine and his father is also 6ft 2 maybe 3

And how developed are you? Can you grow a full beard? Do you look more like an adult man or a boy?

Well then it's very likely that you won't grow much taller.

He said he can only grow a stubble so I assume he can't grow thick terminal hair yet. I think he still has a chance of reaching 6 feet. I highly doubt he'll reach 6'1" though.

The chances of having a growth spurt at your age are very slim, but that doesn't make that you can't grow a little taller. How much have you grown in the past year?

Not very much.... maybe half an inch or 1 inch

Well usually when growth slows down like that it's a sign that you're done or almost done growing taller.

It is usually true but am 15 and I grew half an inch in a year then recently I grew an inch in about 3-3.5 months. Sometimes I think it means your body is preparing itself to grow but idk.

That's a bit odd but you're 15, not 17. I don't know anyone who grew significantly taller after that age.

Dennis Rodman, Kevin Costner and a bunch of NBA players reportedly grew several inches taller after that age but personally I don't know anyone like that either. I think most of them exaggerate their growth spurt.
