    hello,u may stl be short even if ur parents are both tall.genes are handed down frm generation to generation.the height u av may be that of ur grandparents.None the less,eat more of proteins.Am afraid,at 17,u may be able to grow just a little taller as the growth spurt that occurs at puberty has occurred already.nonetheless,no matter what,u need to boost ur self esteem and look beyond ur height.
