Sorry but you will not grow any taller. You stop growth at 21. Do not feel bad about it. There is plenty of ladies out there that will love you for your charming personality. My brother who is as tall as you had a large number of lady admirers and I can witness to his escapades. Stand proudly and do not let anyone bring you down.

No. Your skeleton is what it is. Unless you can find and afford a surgeon willing to perform very risky major surgery for purely cosmetic reasons, which I would consider foolish.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with being on the short side. There are plenty of other ways to stand out from the crowd, if you feel a need to do so.

You're taller than my current girlfriend and one of my past girfriends. You're taller than at least two guys I know well. And you're much too tall to qualify for membership in Little People Of America.

If you insist on stressing about this: Measure yourself first thing in the morning, when the spine is at its least compressed. You might be able to claim another inch.

Being tall is seriously overrated. Trust me, i am 6"3' and it sucks.

You may be average height for your country, i.e. not that short:

Wearing boots can give another inch easily, having a tall hair-cut or wearing a hat gives a bit more.

Mmm Learn to live with what you have - i am 6' 3" and as far as I know have no advantage over shorter people, many of which I know who are brighter, have better personalities and are more successful than me.

In fact in 62 years I have met a small handful of people who were taller than me AND more successful

Be proud of what and who you are :-) (my wife is 5 foot so 5'4 isn't particularly short.) - She is better than me at most things.
