I would say so, you still have growing to do. Men also have one more growth sprurt after 18.

tbm, ur horrible, just horrible lol. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll grow more. Do you have any cousins form your dads side around your age? You can pretty much figure out your height by looking at them.

lol, sry, your age before was deleted when I read it so I assumed you were 17. Well if you're almost 16, I'm almost positive you will have much more time to grow. Usually the first growth spurt is when you turn 14, and from what I've heard the next one is 18? Anyway, I'm sure you're going to be taller, don't worry. Anyway tbm was just messing around (ok maybe he meant it a little) but he does that to me too...well not exactly lol, but he's a kidder so forget it;-)

You will probablly grow more, but no-one can say for sure, make sure you have plenty of nutrients and a good diet, because these things are good for growing.
