It doesn't matter too much you BMI ( body mass index ) matters much more than your weight ad age in general and I haven't gained much weight for a couple of years

You'll grow a bit more if both your parents are short and gain a few more pounds but don't expect much if skinniness runs in your family. Doctors'll say you're underweight but underweight doesn't necessarily mean unhealthy (which is what matters). I'm 20 and only 5'2" and weigh 96lbs but I've always been underweight and that runs in my family. There's really nothing you or I can do to fix that. From experience, don't overeat. It'll just make you sick, constipated or both.
