At 39, you won't grow any taller now. 5'6" is not that short. Why do you want to be taller? I am 5'11" tall, i see too many of my friends taller than me and also many shorter than me. If i am not concerned about my height it doesn't matter how others are...shorter or taller. so feel proud at your height, don't be over concerned about these physical features. If we are having a good personality and a loving heart and a helping hand, we are the best in the world.

I don't know, but I'm 6' 4" and I think that 5' 8" is short. It's really not important though so don't waste your time worrying about it.

i am of your height, & i have always considered myself not tall enought. I wish i had a few extar inches with me. But thats ok.Thats us & we have to accept the way we are. No point in pondering over the height. My country has the average male height as 5'6''. Which country are you from ??

5'6" is about average. It's nothing to be ashamed of, especially since you can't control your height, no more than you can control your eye color.

My whole family are all around 6' tall. I used to think we were tall, but these days I'm dwarfed by adolescents: humans get taller with each generation. Height is not a problem unless it is extreme (very tall or very short), and even then it's just a perception. Who you are is more important than how you look.

I'm short too. We're at the same height. I don't thin I'll eve grow, sadly. I never had a growth spurt. I grew an inch each year and then I just stopped growing. It makes me angry talking about it, so... I don't know your age, but I'm assuming you're 18. You still have a chance of growing some more.

5'6'' isnt very tall or short. but i dont think height doesn't matter all that much, just as long as you arent really short. if you're a guy though, it only matters when you date a girl that's taller than you. it makes your relationship look a bit odd when you walk around together.
