Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. The height of the person is primarily dependent upon the genes which one gets from one's parents and also nutrition & exercise.
Your genes are beyond your control and what is under your control is the nutrition which you take and regular exercise. You should take a high protein diet. You don't need to take/do anything special for that. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
