Well, I think the point is that his growth is consistent with a 17 year old, not that it definitively proves it.

More importantly, it doesnt disprove it (which it would with the vast majority of humans as lengthening in your 20s is extremely rare outside of some situations of childhood undernourishment - which results in a shorter height overall regardless of the late growth).

Its pretty clear to that doctor that hes still growing similar to most 17 yr olds.
