When comparing height there are a few visual clues we can use to get an idea of height differences between 2 individuals. In this video 'How to guess height' I talk about the basic dimensions of a head and the kind of points like nose/mouth/chin that you could use to estimate how tall somebody looks to you, or if comparing celebrity heights, how tall celebrities look beside each other.

James said on 15/Jan/16 How would 5'10" and 6'0" compare? Would the difference be barely noticeable?
[Editor Rob: you would notice it. Typically the 5ft 10 bloke's eyes would be at end of 6ft guys nose.]
