Answer #6

Your height is great. You just have the genes that obviously run through your family. I know about three 12 and 13 year olds whom are taller than you so don’t worry. You just stick to basketball, academics, and hopefully get a good scholarship to a great school, and then head off to the NBA. Well if that is what you want to do!!

Answer #7

Yeah your question is good. do not worry cause when you play basketball u jump a lot and your height gets upgraded so the only thing you can do is to maintain your height there itselfff.. k? Do not worry bro…

Answer #16

I’m 14 in 3 weeks and I’m only 5’2 .

why do I have to be so little =/

Answer #17

While I was in middle school there were 2 people in my grade one was 6’1 and the other 6’2 so your very tall but its ok im tall for my age 2 Im a girl and 5’9 at 14 and tower over most people at my school even seniors… so you most likely wont grow much more considering they have been this tall for about 4 years now. hope I helped

Answer #18

Chill man. I’m 13 and only 2 inches behind you. People are just naturally tall. The “normal” height I would say is probably between 5’5” and 5’9”, but who cares about normal. Everyone is unique.


Answer #19

I’m 14 and I’m 5’9. Well, I guess everyone grows in different times. And I seem to grow slower now. And I have a friends who is still in 6th grade but is like 3-4 inches taller than me and he’s like 11 or something. lol.

Answer #20

oh and average is probably about 5,4 - 5,6

Answer #21

There is no normal all people grow at differnet rate. It depends on your dna. Your dads tall so you’ll be tall Don’t worry you’ll leave off soon

Answer #22

don’t fret my husband was 6’1 in the 6th grade and he isn’t a freak as a matter of fact he never grew after that year he is only 6’2’’ at 29 so don’t worry people just grow at different rates heck im 5’9” myself so maybe your other half one day will be tall herself

Answer #23

your just taking of of the family…i’m 14 and i’m 6’1…so, its normal…the normal heght for most guys is about 5’3-5’6 or somewhere like that

Answer #28

I am 13 years old, and 5’3, I consider myself normal. There are a ton of tall people in my school, and short people. I am neither, so I’m in the ballpark.

For Caucasian females: 5’2’-5’3’ For Latin females: 4’11-5’0’ For African American females: 5’2’-5’3’

For Caucasian males: 5’5’-5’6’ For Latin males: 5’3’-5’4’ For African American males: 5’5’-5’6’

Answer #29

Wow, my brother is 14 years and 6 feet tall. Well, and a half inch. Nothing wrong with being tall. Heck, you probably won’t grow much more then that.
