my advice is you need to do a sport that make you bigger like musculation you will not gain much height but you will apear much bigger and cooler

Re: height n weight prob
Diet and exercise are your only options. Reduce your caloric intake by eating healthy whole foods and skip the high fat and high sugar foods. Start an exercise program you can stick with. Find something that you like to do and be consistent. Basically its calories in vs calories out. The hardest part is getting started, but once you get the food and the exercise down it gets easy.

What about at the age of 23? is there still a chance to grow?

Very doubtful. We usually stop growing by the time we reach 17.
