How tall are your parents and other members of your family?

Not to be rude, but are you a fortune teller?

You'll grow. I wager at 15 it'll be anywhere from 1-7inches... But, if you don't grow too much, you're still normal. Some people are just shorter than others. It's no big deal.

Between 16 and 17 you'll hit what might turn out to be your last growth spurt. Being 15 and 5 foot 3 is a little smaller than average. I'd consider the average for that age to be 5'5?

Not a big deal

You can't really ask if your height is normal or not. I know 15-year-old guys who are 5'3 and ones who are over 6'. There's nothing wrong with being 5'3 at 15. You'll definitely grow at least a few more inches or else hit a massive growth spurt soon.

I don't know what to say...

Most boys don't stop growing until their early twenties, you've got ages yet so no need to worry.
