He's around 6 ft 4 and only 16, how is he so tall when his parents are so short? And no he was not adopted.

Answers:

Because mom and dad's heights aren't the only factor in determining a child's height.

he may have been father by another guy

Because there are more factors that decide how tall someone grows than genetics only. Food, sleep, possible illnesses, the age puberty started etc.

I'm taller than my dad, which is unusual because I'm a woman. Even more unusual when you realize my height is below average as it is. In my dad's case it's not a mystery why he's shorter than his genetic potential: he was born three years before World War II, he was a growing boy during the German occupation of the Netherlands, and nearly starved to death during the famine called the Hunger Winter when he was 7. That stunts a boy's growth. And he's not alone. Many people his age - especially those who grew up in cities - are noticeably shorter than average.

What about other relatives. Maybe grandparents or aunts and uncles.

Genetics are a funny thing and things like height, eye color, and hair color can jump a generation and show back up in grandchildren even if the children didn't get a specific trait. The genetics just need to be in the family tree.

Whats the other alternatives?

he probably took after his grandparents or some long ago relative, everyone in my family is short except my one brother and hes tall and i heard he looks like my grandfather
