My DS is nearly 17 and nearly 6'6 shock
Is he going to grow any more, he's much taller than his dad and siblings confused

Most teens stop growing between 16-18 but some can still be growing in there early twenties!

I think it often depends when they started growing.
DS1 had a big growth spurt at 11 and had pretty much stopped by 16 at 6'1.
DS2 didn't start his growth spurt until almost 16 and I'm not sure he's finished yet at 19 - he's 6'4"

I think my DS is heading that way too. 14 since January and almost 6'2''. He is sooo much taller than his friends.

His dad is 6'3'' but I'm only 5'2''. He was supposedly the tallest baby born in that hospital for many years (60cm).

You might want to have his pituitary gland checked to make sure everything is ok.
