Is it possible I will have a growth spurt soon?

I am male, and 14 and 8 months, turning 15 at the end of May. I am 5'8, my mom is 5'4 and my dad is 5'3 (no typo- all his family is short). However, my dad has a half-brother who is 6'5.

I figure I take after her side, because not only do I look more like her, all the males in her family are 6ft+. I have 6ft+ uncles and I know of two aunts who are 5'11 and 6'. My tallest cousin is 6'7 and exactly a foot taller than his dad.

Can I still grow more? I grew two inches from last year. I haven't had a growth spurt, like the question suggests.

Yeah possibly. I think you stop growing around 18-21.

its possible but don't bet on it. The age at which the body stops growing can vary from person to person since it depends on their hormones and other factors. Men can stop growing anywhere from 19-25 years of age, while women can stop growing around 19 years of age. You can find more information here: www.health2009.com

you may grow a bit more till your 17 but it already sounds like you are falling into that short man complex and don't go there cuz guys that do always look short because of it. if you are good with how tall you are so will every one else be and trust me your hight has got to be the least of your problems. seriously let that go it will screw with entire life. besides 5.8 ain't really that short 5.2 maybe even then if its not an issue in your thinking it won't be in most others

Short man complex? I'm just wondering if I can still grow. You're reading into it too much, never do I say I have a problem with my height.
