13 year old boy Advanced Bone Age Stage 4 puberty

Hi, my son is 13.5 years old. Has an advanced bone age of around 14.9 years. He originally had a predicted height of 5’10” before we found out he had advanced bone age. He now has predicted height of 5’5”. He hasn’t grown a lot and has always been small for his age. He is currently 5’2 and starting to get a light mustache and jawline hair. . I would like to hear from parents who have been in this situation. How did things turn out? Did your son end up around the predicted height or taller? Any feed back would be great!
Worried mom here. Thanks so much!

Hello and welcome to the forum. I wanted to follow up with you since it has been a while since you posted.  There is a trend for kids to go through puberty sooner and your son is about the age that many do just that.  What testing did your son do to determine the bone age?  Has he been referred to an endocrinologist?  How tall are you and your child's father?  https://www.webmd.com/children/features/diagnosis-treatment#1
