Growth for height

Patient

Q: Dear doctor i about to be 20 years old this coming october and my current situation is my heigh . My mom is 4ft5 and dad is 5ft1. my height is 5ft2 which is very dissapointing because people said that guys will stop growing at the age of 21 and its not possible for me to achieve my dream height in a year time 175cm. I am pilot which makes me feel very shy and uncomfortable abt my heigh so i been doing streching excercise like hanging, taking 2 glass of milk daily and still nothing. I search on the internet and its says that L ornithine and L arginine plays a good role in growth secreation is that true? and should i take that for my heigh? if not that what other ways for me to grow taller ? thank you dr.
