The height of a person is determined by his or her genetics, and it is believed that a person stops growing after reaching the age of 18-21 years of age. But there are various other factors that influence growth and a person can still grow a few inches taller. Your issue can be discussed in detail and precise manner over a call or a video conferencing. Thanks.
