you are only 16 and you will grow taller. genetics do play a major role in your height. read up on it lol.<br />
don't do surgeries, its stupid. 172cm is high enough, especially for a guy.

look, I do get that being a teenager is hard on its own. I also get that at this age you think things like your height is super important. But your height is ok, 172cm for a guy is very good. Genetics play a big role, a huge role in your height, so unless one of your parents is 6 feet, chances are, you probably won't be that high. Give it time. There's a big chance you will grow even higher over the next few years. As for surgeries, they're too painful and expensive, often have complications, and if something goes wrong... and they're just unnecessary, believe me. And those who will say some herbs or other bs will help you grow, they're lying. Just give it some time. I'm 159cm though I'm a girl. For a guy your height is good.

Hey friend,my name is kunal pandey. But you should know that playing outdoors game is very important but there is also a role of pitituary gland.You know i love to play football,but my height little bit increase like in the age of 16,my height was 5' 7 inch like that.But after that suddenly in the age of 18,now my height has increased upto 5' 11.5,just 0.5 inches away from 6 feet.You know parents height are maximum 5'7 inches.So you are just a kid,don't loose any hope at this age........for my height increase i had done following things:drinks lots and lots of milk,playing football or cricket,sleep at-least 8 hours.So plz follow it.
