Raja Basu warm welcome to this site and glad to see your first post here. According to me your height seems to be ok considering your age. In case you want to increase your height, it is better to go for trying rings in the park. If you swing more on the rings, surely your height is going to increase. But I understand from the elders that the height of any person can grow up to the age of 19 and then stops. So you already attained 19 years and further growing of height may not be possible. But try the idea given by me and see whether you can improve your height.

Height is to some extent hereditary. If your parents and near relatives are of average height, then you can't hope that your height would be greater than maximum 5 feet 10 inches.

To attain maximum height subject to your hereditary condition, you have to take nutritious food and do some specific exercises prescribed by qualified gym instructors. Don't try to increase height using any drug. Your height may still grow till you attain the age of 21.
