Why am I so short?

I am nearing my 16th birthday and I am only 5'3 as a guy. The last major growth spurt I had was at 12 years old, and I have barely grown since then. Why am I so short and will I grow taller?

    As everyone else has stated, it all depends on your genetics. Chances are you will grow more. How much more only time will tell. However tall you end up being, you need to be comfortable with your height since it is not something you can change. I'm considered short and it has never been an issue. Take care.

    It is genetics, but follow a healthy diet, exercise & life style from this point on & you may get a little more growth. No drugs.
