Why have I hit puberty but never had a growth spurt?

I hit puberty when I was 13 at 5'2/5'3 ish now im 16 at 5'6. But I grew steadily and never had like a 3 or 4 inch spurt like all of my friends. Its really dissapointing for me and my brother who is my height at 18 turning 19 but he was always smaller. whats more dissapointing is my doctor predicted for me to hit 6' when my brother was only predicted to get to 5'8. Can I still surpass my brother and get a 4-6 inch spurt?

My brother said something about drinking 2 glasses of milk every night...I don't know if it works but he was maybe your height and now he's taller than our dad.

Yeah its possible for you to grow more. Some people dont stop growing until their 25.
