Nutrition and lifestyle do make differences in height, and not just that of the mother during pregnancy. You must have just made that up because that's ridiculous.

This is true. I read a story about a girl who spent the first 12 or so years of her life in a closet in horrid conditions, and it really stunted her growth. Can't believe someone actually believes improper nutrition doesn't stunt growth...

For the love of anything holy Jared, not one thing you wrote was accurate.
There is no such thing as a 'recessive short gene', height is a polygenic trait.
While blue eyes are a recessive gene, you need that recessive gene on both sides of the family, and no recessive gene comes out once 'every ten generations'. That's not how genetics work.
Nutrition and lifestyle do make differences in height, and not just that of the mother during pregnancy. You must have just made that up because that's ridiculous.
Lastly, no-one can just look at the bones of a 5 month old child and determine his or here height with any more accuracy than consulting a oujia board. Another thing it seems you just made up.

I'm in a similar situation to you because I am only 164cm, while my dad is 173 and my mum 160-161. And my sister is 159-160. I think my "recessive short gene" comes from my dad's side. While he managed to grow to 5ft 8 range, his dad was only 5ft 5, although his mum (my grandma) was 5ft 2.5 but his two sisters are only 4ft 11 and 5ft.

Anyhow, 98% accuracy is predicting a child's full height at 5 months doesn't allow for as precise a forecast as you might think, since it still entails a margin of error of well over an inch in either direction. The difference between 5'6 and 5'8 may seem like a lot given the social connotations that have been set up over the years around specific height measurements, so on paper a 2-inch difference may seem significant for social reasons, but statistically speaking it's really not a big difference. 66/68=.9705......

I understand the point about recessive genes, but a tall couple having a 5'4 son is pretty extreme I think. That probably happens far less often than once in 10 generations. I probably had a recessive gene, as my parents are both weak average for their respective genders. I'm 5'5. Mom's 160-162 range, not sure exactly, while my dad's 5'7.5-5'8 range, although he claims 5'9. Never in my life have I encountered another guy with a recessive short gene. It's gotta be extremely rare. Every other short dude I know, say 5'4 5'5 5'6 or '7 even has at least one parent who is a stand out short for their gender. I'm friends with a pair of brothers where one is like 5'5.5-5'6 and other one is 6'2. LOL Anyhow, their father's solid average height, but the mother might be less than 5'0, so there's an explainable reason that one of their kids might end up short. I don't have a single male blood relative on either side who's anything less than weak average.

Fwiw regarding dwarfism, while 5'7 and under may be considered 'short' for a man from a social standpoint, you're only considered clinically short in most Western countries if you under 5'4 or so.

Rob, was he pleasant when you met him? I heard he's not fond of people bringing up his role in The Phantom Menace.
[Editor Rob: I never got his autograph, and really only greeted him at this photo area. I would say he was reserved, he may well have had bad experiences with people over his perceived association with the prequels being 'not so good'. I think they had good and bad points about them personally.]

by the way, when they say we have become taller due to better health and nutrition, they mean we have become better at giving birth to taller people. What you do during your childhood won't change your height at all, but what your parents did during conception did. Still, in the western world, it's all about genes, parents never goes through what someone living on an african village does.

there's nothing pathological with his height, growth hormones can't do anything unless you have the genes to be taller and for all we know, Jake's growth hormones levels at young age might have been above average. Growth hormones deficiencies would cause dwarfism and 5'5 is not dwarfism. Genes are like a lottery. Take my cousins: father and mother are olive-skinned 5'10 and 6'1 with dark brown hair and eyes. One son is olive-skinned, 6'1 and have dark eyes and hair. His brother is 5'7, light blond and blue eyed. It turn out a great-great-great grandfather had blue eyes and blond hair a recessive genes and it seems to come out every 10 generations. The same with short height in tall people. Recessive genes are known to be taken by the womb every 5 to 10 generations. That's how a very tall couple might have a 5'4 son. It's all about genes, nothing to do with GH since those people look extremely healthy and fit, not the case with someone who grew with a GH deficiency.
There's not even one evidence that nutrition or lifestyle makes any difference in one's height as long as they're not deadly sick since a study on anorexic growing patients show them they grew to their expected height even after 2 years of bad nutrition and underweight. In fact the majority of researches show that height is determined at birth, at 5 months after conception they can already guess with a 98% accuracy the height range the child will be, without even knowing the height of the parents, they just need to look at his spine bones and leg bones.

I see Justin Bieber at the same height.

Rob i never thought he was 5ft 5in i always thought he was taller at least 5ft 11in do you think he should have taken growth hormones when he was younger he would have been tallish in star wars episode one instead of short and he would have been tallish today instead of short if he had taken growth hormomes when he was in star wars episode one.
[Editor Rob: he might have gained a bit more height, but more 1-3 inches rather than big amounts.]

Emil said on 30/Sep/13
He looks very confident. Seems like a cool guy
Tom said on 5/Aug/13
Rob, is there any chance that he's in the 5.5.5 range? It seems to me that he might be slouching a little bit in the pic.
[Editor Rob: never looked over 5ft 5 to me]

I always thought this guy was quite small, but this is just EXTREME lol. They should have got a tall, muscular boy to play Anakin, instead of this guy who is tiny.

I am 13 now and 5 ft 7.25 inches, I hope to be tall.

Thanks for today's laugh Michael. You seem quite insecure.

hey michael thats messed up man, give the kid a break, he did good, well did you know that many times when choosing child actors they would choose short older kids because its easier for older kids to act

On the Howard Stern show a few years ago, she said that she was 5'11.
