I think that 5'9.75" is OK for him!

Rob, would he be the exact average height for a 18-30 year old male today?
Within the average range, which is close to 5ft 10 in countries like America and UK.

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

No more than 176.... 176 max

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.

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.
Jakertini said on 31/Oct/15
looks 5'9" on the dot
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!
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 landscape...it should have been like Portrait
anyway, I thought he looked over 5ft 9 but not a full 5ft 10, anywhere around 177 I guessed.]

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
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.

I think the hair on him may be throwing off your estimate, Rob.

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'...
