Post Very large stretch marks in the middle of my back

I've had these for a little over a year.

I'm 16 years old, male, not overweight, and did not have a big growth spurt. My parents and siblings do not have them so I don't think it's genetic.

I have about 3-4 very long, skinny ones that stretch about 75% of the way across my back and 2-3 others that are smaller. My lower back near my butt is covered in them but those have faded pretty well although they are still noticeable.

It really, REALLY sucks because I can't go swimming with my friends or even be in a situation where I might have to take my shirt off (sexual stuff). Plus I am on accutane so no laser surgery. Am I pretty much screwed for the rest of my teen years? I am extremely embarrased and ashamed of myself because of them.....
