I'm now 17 and i've tried alot of things to get rid of it, diets, cardo exercise, crunches (done alot of research on fitness too) and i can't seem to shake it. Because like most guys, i'd like to have muscular abs too, haha.

anyone with a similar problem who has a good way to shake it? or as i grow taller (which i beleive might be still happening) will i thin out and look more 'proportioned'

thanks for your time
The BMI from what I've read only determines your weight-type accordingly towards your Height and Weight.

I didn't know you could have baby fat when you're 17

Aside from that little ignorable note from me
I'd say you could hit a growth spurt and stretch it all out... That's what happens to most guys anyway. Not me though, I started to grow then I stopped. I think I'm 5'8".

Could it also be possible that you are intaking more calories a day than you are burning off? o.o
