so here's the deal, im 13 year old guy . im 5'8 , my mum is 5'3 and my dad is 6'0.i havent had any growth spurts yet.i dont know if this matters but i had 2 grandgrand fathers who were 6'9 and my uncle(dads brother) is 6'4.my mothers dad and mum are both short.her father is 5'7 and mum 5'2. tallest from her side is also my uncle and he is 6'2.my fathers side is mostly tall(the shortest one is my dad and only male side ) . is there any possibility to know how tall will i grow ? plus i play basketball every day so i jump a lot , will that affect my height too?

my best guess is that you're going to average out at 6'2-3. as far as plaiybasketball, i've never heard of that affecing your height one way othe other. just don't worry about it!

Yah just calculate the average, add them all up and divide by the number of heights but use a decimal point in place of the the apostrophe.

First, don't worry about your height, think about the good in life and the things you can do whatever height you are..especially if you have your health.
With that said. My son looks like me and is on the short side like my family,My daughter looks like her dad and has the height of his siblings, my hubby is the shortest of 7 kids.
I knew a kid in school that was a peanut when he graduated and when he attended a class reunion,we did not know him.HE WAS SO TALL..You just don't know, that is why I tell you not to worry.It is about the person, not the looks or the height..All about from within. Take care..

You should get to be pretty tall, but if you want to improve your chances of growing tall eat right! I'm a girl and I'm just as tall as you! :(

You're probably gonna be 6'0 to 6'9 you are considered very tall for a thirteen year old so I'm sure by the time you are done growing you'll be pretty tall
