View Full Version : Too short for my age?

April 23rd, 2013, 03:43 PM
Hey, so pretty much I just wanted to ask if i'm considered short for my age.. i'm 14, and I went to the doctor about 2-3 weeks ago, and he told me I stand at 5'10. I don't know if that's short, average, or tall for my age, and I just want to be sure, since most kids my age are like 6'0+.. thanks

That's pretty average for your age. There is nothing to worry about. :)

You fine i'm pretty sure a white male average is like 5 foot 8.(Adult). Where do you live because I highly doubt most guys your age are 6 foot plus. Maybe you are just noticing the ones thats are taller than you.

Yje average adult male in the UK is about 5' 10". I'm 5' 5" at 18 (parents not that tall). You just seem to have some tall friends

How the hell is that short? I'm only 5'2" !!!

The average for a 14 yo is about 5'2". So your not that short.

Tall. Don't be fooled, most kids your age are definitely not 6.0+. The average is way, way lower than that.
