You will be at least 5 feet

You will be at least 5 feet seven inches tall, if I was feeling bolder I would have gone 5' 8", but not tonight...

In all honesty, noone is going to be able to give you a real answer. But you could end up being tall, mabey even 6'4", since that is probably around the answer you wanted.

lol...

depends on your genes really if your like most average people... which you are not... you will get a growth spert around that time age 13 and thats pretty much it for your growing... thats why you see a lot of kids in junior high around the same height... if you havent hit a growth spert and has naturally gotten to that height you will get a late growth spert giving you anywhere from 5-8 inches... source mother who is a nurse

oh and males dont really stop growing until 25 so they say so... you can still have hope until then but really if you already hit that growth spert your pretty much down growing...

I would have to say somewhere

I would have to say somewhere from 5'10 - 6'2

But like everyone else said, you could even end up being 6'8", nobody ever knows.

It could be anywhere, i'm 6'4

It could be anywhere, i'm 6'4 and theres nobody else in my family above 5'7, shoe size does indicate you'll be relatively tall however.

You'll

You'll be 6'4", but your wingspan will only be 4'11".

Also, you will go down two shoe-sizes to 8.5 by the time you are 18.

slightly off topic. there is

slightly off topic. there is an old wives tale that at the age of 2 years and 3 months or 2 years and 6 months ( i am not sure which one) you will be exactly half your height.

I have heard this from a few people that can back up their stories with their own kids height....

If you're really presses

If you're really presses about trying to get taller, read this article on wikiHow.

http://www.wikihow.com/Grow-Taller

I find the article quite ridiculous though. It says that the way you sleep can make you taller by a few inches. And example of this is to no longer sleep with a pillow and to keep your body as straight as you can, but I'm not going to go through all that just to get taller.

Most of your growth is based on genes though.

No way to tell. My dad is

No way to tell. My dad is 5'8", my mom 5'6", me 6'5". Besides my brother (6'6") the next tallest person in our family is 6"1" and he isn't even blood related. Genetics can give a clue but you never know.

I'm a little bit more than

I'm a little bit more than 6-4 now but I was almost 6 ft tall when I was 13. I remember telling everyone I was 6 ft but I was more like 5-11.

My dad is only like 6 ft tall and my mom is only like 5-2 she's tiny. My older bro is about 6-1 so yeah genes can only tell you so much.

Who knows you could have an Anthony Davis like growth spurt and end up 6 and a half feet tall.

If you want to reach your

If you want to reach your full growth potential, avoid lifting weights till you reach 16-17yrs old. It's been scientifically proven that kids who start weightlifting are less likely to reach full growth potential.

If you would like to grow I

If you would like to grow I would suggest tying yourself to two horses that are running in opposite directions...

That should do the trick.

Umm money, how does that help

Umm money, how does that help him grow?

I mean, unless his mom has some estrogen pills in there I don't think that would help.
