Everyone surely wants to be tall. However, not everyone can be as tall as they would like to be. There can be several reasons for this. One of the major reasons for this is genetics. Therefore, you can't do anything about this. 

However, we have something for you if you want to increase your height. Himalayan Siddha Grand Master Akshar says, "asanas like Chakrasana, Dhanurasana and Padahastasana can help you achieve the height that you have always wanted."

This might have come as good news to you but remember this is not for everyone. This is because as your teenage years end, your height also stops to increase permanently. Therefore, this is only beneficial for the people below the age of 20.
