What age do boys stop growing ?

    I’m 6 foot in bare feet.

    I recently saw some photos of when I was 17 and I’m the same size as people I’m taller than now. My mother said I had a growth a couple spurts after I turned 18 - I outgrew my school uniform twice. I was “very short for my age” a lit growing up.

    Is this unusual? Or do people stop growing just when they stop growing?

    I know a couple of guys in my family kept growing when they were in college. Up to age 21 or so. I think most boys stop growing before then though
