Spot on, 1.5 inches taller than Rob, maybe a tad above 5'9.75, but anyways this listing is perfect
Dragon said on 22/Aug/22
I think he should be upgraded to at least 5’10.5
Jawilder said on 29/Mar/22
He’s max 5’9.75. This listing is solid tho.

@Jesse Dumont
He looks 5'9.75 at least with Rob, what are you talking about? Rob isn't a 5'8 flat guy, he's 5'8.25 at the very least and this guy is no way 5'9.5 or under like you described. That's a solid 1.5 inch difference minimum and 2 inch maximum.
Short Queen said on 20/Oct/21
Do you think he’s surpassed this height today? I watched the tv series Daybreak and it looked like he grew another 2-3 inches.
Editor Rob
I don't think he put on that much more height.
Sammy 6'5" said on 30/Jan/21
not even 5'10 trying to claim 6 foot haha
Eric W Tam said on 21/Oct/20
Pathetic height frauder. Not even 5'10 and claiming 5'11 to 6'0. 5'9 3/4 - 5
10 throughout much of the day, 5'9.5 at night. Wonder if he would claim "5'10 maybe 5'11" when he shrinks to like 5'8.5. Lol clown.
Jesse Dumont said on 14/Sep/20
He literally only looks an inch taller than Rob if we're looking at the top of their heads (he also has more hair to take into consideration). If you compare chin heights, his is much higher up because his long neck and wow, his tiny head lol. Looks 5'9.25 to me. I don't agree with the listing. If anything, he's 5'9.5" at most but I still don't see that here. He needs a downgrade to at least 5'9.5" but I think that's being pretty generous.

This is one of the few child actors who grew up to be average height. Almost every other child actor I know of has only grown to be 5 ft. 4-5 ft. 7.”
Jae said on 27/Apr/20
Hasn't this li'le fellow grown up? I was just about to request him, having been watching him in 'We Bought a Zoo'. I read he was 5'10" tall, but I think (I think I know!) that Rob knows otherwise....

5ft9.5" - quite tall for a child actor!
Mano said on 29/Nov/19
Lol his skull is realllllly tiny
He looked 6 foot in the daybreak tv series
Nik said on 17/Mar/19
I think that 5'9.75" is OK for him!
Resurrected said on 28/Jan/19
Rob, would he be the exact average height for a 18-30 year old male today?
Editor Rob
Within the average range, which is close to 5ft 10 in countries like America and UK.
Bobby said on 14/Jan/19
Looking back on this, I think I would edge him out by a 1/4-1/2. I would place his range more in the 176 range than 177 range. Could just be his proportions though. Rob has had pictures with other celebs with the same listing who appear taller next to him than he does. Such as Elden Henson for instance.
Jram$$$ said on 7/Dec/18
This guys looking about 5’ 91/2
Zampo said on 20/May/18
The average guess is spot on! Somewhere in-between 5'9.5-5'9.75, depending on footwear. 177 cm suits him well. Not a hair over though.
Kourosh said on 22/Oct/17
176.5 cm my height.
S.J.H said on 16/Jun/17
@World Citizen said on 1/Jun/17

True. But more like he dips below that like 175.5cm range
World Citizen said on 1/Jun/17
He looks no more than 176 to me.
S.J.H said on 31/Mar/17
More i see him he only look 2cm taller than rob if took off his brush up hair advantage. 5'9 and since footwear is unknown
Inteval said on 13/Mar/17
That's weird Rob. Initially I thought he was 6 foot. Looked 4 inches taller than you.
Editor Rob
were you a bit tipsy J?
Bobby said on 2/Mar/17
Rob, do you base these listings on their afternoon measurements or what they'd measure in the evening? I'd still wager to guess that he's a decent 5'10 anyway.
Editor Rob
afternoon I'd say rather than morning.
Mike said on 22/Feb/17
I'll give him a weak 5'10" assuming guy on the right is 5'8"
S.J.H said on 27/Sep/16
That tiny short head give illusion of 5'10 especially the hair. He could be around 175.5cm barefoot so i"ll say 5'9.25
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 10/Sep/16
even with hair he doesn't reach 5'10 mark base on your scale on the photo.
179,50 said on 28/Dec/15
No more than 176.... 176 max
Dave said on 19/Nov/15
Rob, considering that you average out around 5'8.5", he doesn't look much more than an inch taller than you. Your eye level is lower because he has a bit of a taller neck than you. I'd say 5'9.5" is more reasonable. What do you think?
Editor Rob
I measure 5ft 8.25 on my stadiometer after being on feet 6 hours (like at any event I will be on feet a lot since 7am), and since the stadiometer gives near 1/8th extra I would safely say I was in the 5ft 8 1/8th range as this is a lunchtime photo.
Dee said on 14/Nov/15
He looks more 5'9.5" any chance to modify the listing rob?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure he is just 5ft 9.5, I think he might measure a bit above that.
joe@@ said on 30/Oct/15
I would say 177cm based on eye level and shoulder
Andrea said on 29/Oct/15
Well, if his hair is only 0.4-0.5, I confirm what i said at the beginning: 177 with the hair and more a solid 5'9 if measured, after shaving his head :)
5'9.25 fits him!
Andrea said on 28/Oct/15
Rob, how much do his hair give? He looks 177... with the hair!
Editor Rob
somewhere in 0.4-0.5 range I would guess...incidentally I hadn't realised the photographer had turned his camera to landscape instead of the default portrait. By the time I got my printout from colin and his other co-actor they had gone, and the photographer did apologise, for some reason he thought I asked him for should have been like Portrait...

anyway, I thought he looked over 5ft 9 but not a full 5ft 10, anywhere around 177 I guessed.
mr.rashid said on 28/Oct/15
The lad is no more than 5'9"-5'9.5" range, the 5'11" listing on every site is an utter joke.
joe @@ said on 28/Oct/15
177 cm strong almost 178 cm
MD said on 28/Oct/15
BTW, here he is with 5'9" Mike Vogel from earlier this year. Vogel has a footwear advantage in this shots, though, I'm not sure how much of an advantage it is:

And, really, that's assuming a full 5'9" for Vogel, which is his most recent self-claimed height.
MD said on 28/Oct/15
I think the hair on him may be throwing off your estimate, Rob.
Andrea said on 27/Oct/15
He looks more a solid 5'9 than a weak 5'10 here... He grew a lot, didn't he, Rob? I saw a photo with Jared (dated back to 2010, but maybe taken a bit before) where he doesn't look over 5'...
