In retrospect, I'm convinced that Tergesen is or at least was taller than 5'10"5 that he states. Think about it - he doesn't seem like a guy who has much insecurities, often putting himself in the roles of perverted, pathetic and/or humiliated characters; I don't think his height matters to him that much either. Now, when someone was measuring his height they might've gotten it a tad wrong - maybe the tape or the person who measured was inaccurate or Tergesen was not simply standing upright - and when his height was given as 5'10"5 he was like "okay, fine".
Just look at him in Oz - he could easily hold his own against the max 5'11 J.K. Simmons and the (probably) 6 feet tall Eamonn Walker. There seemed to be two centimeters of difference between him and the 6 footer Christopher Meloni as well.
Lee Tergesen's height? During Oz years, I give him 181 centimeters (5'11"25in), I'm convinced he stood that tall on a good day. Maybe a centimeter or two shorter today, putting him near the claimed 5'10"5 mark.

Yeah he does look this height, sometimes even a little bit taller, like a strong 5'11 or something. But why would he understate his height then?
Yeah the current listing is what he was AT LEAST during Oz.

Actually surprised that he's this height...he can seem a weak six footer at times on screen, seems a smidge taller than J.K. Simmons and barely shorter than Christopher Meloni.

The problems with average height is that it doesn't always give a real view of the general heights. In the first decades of the 20th century, there was still a big number of illiteracy and malnutricion in Spain. That is going to affect the growth of people. On the other hand, I think in those years people with high incomes could manage to avoid military service, so it was normally the poor boys the ones that had to do it, again the illiterates and malnourished. Dalí's family was considered to be middle class (although I don't think that the conception of middle class existed at the moment, they were probably a low high-class family or something like that).
For the record, the problem with education was solved in the 1930's with the 2nd Republic of Spain (1931-1936) and I'm pretty sure that Franco made military service compulsory for every young boy since the very beginning of his dictatorship in 1939. Time has shown that with a proper education and diet, Spaniards are as tall as most Europeans (with the exception of Holland).
