    Good morning. most people tend to stop growing around the age of 18 years. at this point, what is responsible for getting taller (growth plates) might have fused. however, in a very small percentage of the people, there are still some chances for some slight increase in their height as a result of the delayed fusion of these plates. so, it is not impossible for some people to still have some forms of growth at that age. cheers
