Default How tall should you be

We got a new kid in class. And he came in with a band around his head because he had some type of surgery. This kid like 7 ft tall. Never seen a kid this tall. He is also emo or gothic with his attire and finger naked painted black but I find him attractive but he got spoken to about his low cut shirt that almost exposes his nipples. He may have a hard time.

I dont understand your question? There's really no height that you "should" be, your height is based entirely on your parents' genetics. Since he's so tall at a young age he could also have some sort of Pituitary Gland problem

You grow as tall as genetics allow.

That would explain why he has that medical band. But at his age being that tall. It just doesn't make since

Our bodies don't just grow as fast as they can. In humans, growth is actually fairly slow compared to other animals. For example, if you have a dog it only spends about a year being a puppy. Even allowing for a shorter life overall it still spends much less of its life growing up compared to us.

So our growth rate is regulated by hormones including the level of HGH (human Groth Hormone) in our blood. In turn that is produced by the pituitary gland, probably in response to a signal from the hypothalamus (part of the brain). A pituitary tumour can produce far too much HGH and the result is growing much faster than normal, hence being 7" at a young age.

And now Wikipedia is back I can link to the Wikipedia article on Gigantism which include a reference to a tumor on the pituitary gland in the second paragraph.

I agree with the guy above, and there clearly is an issue with the kid for him to be that tall. I would think the average person would not go above the high six feet range, and my guess is like the guy above said the person must have a disorder which does not cut off his growth. I am guessing that the kid had some sort of surgery around his Pituitary Gland or somewhere by his brain to stop the growth. There are definitely disorders out there where people end up abnormally tall, and this kid might be one of them.

He most likely had neck surgery as you describe the band around his head is most likely a halo to keep his head and neck from moving. As far as height you grow as you are going to grow. Some kids sprout up at an earlier age.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

No I found out he had something called giantism. He had it corrected apparently but he is gorgeous for such a giant boy.

After reading your post he has the body of a kid. But we saw him after gym class in the showers naked and his dick sure isn't a normal size either

If you happen to know what height you were on your 2nd birthday - and not many of us do - you double it and that should give your full adult height within half an inch.

Sorry, that was useless information but it might help someone in years to come.

Well his operation supposedly has helped a lot. Just his abnormal height is the only problem. They say his teeth, neck and head will be normal.

I doubt it, but if he was from a family of giant people, that would be his average. For example I am short for my dad's side of the family, me being 5,7 to 5,8-depends on the professsional-. Since their average is 6,3 to the tallest one being 6,7. Yet I am the tallest on my moms side,my mom only being a few inches-at most- shorter. So if that is his families natural height it's unormal but okay-might explain why his face and other features aren't like that of a typical person with giantism-. Thoug from the sounds of it, his family is not one of those types.

Hello we are a system-more than one person inhabiting a body-, and glad to be able to be a part of here,if you have anything you wish to talk about we are willing to talk. We can also give you more info on systems if requested.
