I'm turning 17 pretty soon and still look like a "younger kid". Even though I'm 5'11 and my voice has broken, my body and face look like that of a younger boy. I'm really skinny too. I also have no visible facial hair but have hair everywhere else. Anyone know if this has to do with my weight? thyroid gland? :confused:
