Did I stop growing?
Thank you, but could I also know why when visiting my mother's country, Colombia, I grew but when I came back nothing changed and I was still the same height. Any reason perhaps?

Children .. some up until young adults .. have growth spurts. Some actually have pain during these spurts.
Your genes that you inherit from your parents and long line of ancestors play a part on how tall you may grow.
If you have concerns talk with your parents and your doctor.
Here is a link to an article that may help you understand a bit more about growth and if you should be concerned. https://kidshealth.org/en/teens/growth-hormone.html
