Increase in the height is due to growth of large bones of the body. These bones continue to grow until production of some hormones at puberty. Usually, these bones are sensitive to certain levels of a hormone called testosterone. So, it has been reported that development of large bones is continued up to the age of 18 years. That is why height and weight scale of below 18 years is different from over 18 years of age.

Boys and girls who become sexually mature, their height stops to increase after getting sexual maturity in comparison with those who become adult late.
