5'9 is a decent height. Your not to tall nor to short & a little taller than most girls. I say most girls because it seems like todays teenage girls are taking some kind of pill that bump them up a few iches...lol

Thanks. My dads 5'9 and my mums 5'5. But I stand taller than my dad so I'm sure I must be a bit taller. So far I've taken more after my mums side and there all tall. When do you stop growing ?

Some male stop growing about the age of 16. How old are you? & what worries you about your height?

You may grow to be 5'10 to 5'11....pending on age

I'm almost 16, and almost 5'3, and so are a lot of my friends, so I think it depends on your age and genetics.

I'm 21yrs but I have noticed that I'm still growing. I think I was a late developer. My mum has always said that I take after her side of the family and her brothers (my uncles) are all over 6ft, like 6'3" and they were late developers. What do you think the chances are ? Thanks for your help..

I am 22 and was the same height since I was 15 I wish I got taller but My family is pretty short. I stand 5'10 and I am the tallest. If your family is late bloomers then your genes may be the same thing where you may grow another few inches. I don't expect you'll hit 6'3 unless you eat you veggies...

I don't think I'll hit 6'3", not unless I have a freakish growth spurt! If I had a choice I'd be 6ft

6 ft is a decent height. I think anything between 5'8 to 6ft would be just right. In this case your not to tall nor short.

Ric,
As a 6' tall girl, I'd say that 5'9" is not short. Most of the guy friends that I have are your height. If I had a choice, I wouldn't be this tall, but, hey, what am I going to do about it? Shrink??
Don't worry, you're "all set."
