Tall

Height is the measurement of vertical distance, but has two meanings in common use. It can either indicate how "tall" something is, or how "high up" it is. For example "The height of the building is 50 m" or "The height of the airplane is 10,000 m"....  When used to describe how high something like an airplane or mountain peak is from sea level, height is more often called altitude. Height is measured along the vertical axis between a specified point and another point   more

Average

Human height or stature is the distance from the bottom of the feet to the top of the head in a human body, standing erect. It is measured using a stadiometer, usually in centimetres when using the metric system, and feet and inches when using the i... mperial system. Adult human height has varied from under 60 centimetres to over 260 centimetres. On average, males are taller than females.When populations share genetic background and environmental factors, average height is frequently characteristic within the group. Exceptional height variation within such a population is sometimes due to gigantism or dwarfism, which are medical conditions caused by specific genes or endocrine abnormalities.In regions of poverty or warfare, environmental factors like chronic malnutrition during childhood or adolescence may account for delayed growth and/or marked reductions in adult stature even without the presence of any of these medical conditions   more

I think my son may be on his way to becoming a monster. He is 1-2 inches over kids 2-3 years older than him
