(Newser) – The tallest president in US history was Abraham Lincoln, at 6 feet 4 inches—but Barron Trump might end up being the tallest resident of the White House. President Trump's youngest son, who turned 13 in March, has shot up in height in recent months, USA Today reports. Photos of the Trump family returning to the White House after a vacation at a Trump golf course in New Jersey on Sunday showed that Barron has a new hairstyle and is now taller than his father, who is believed to be 6-foot-3.

He also towered over his 5-foot-11 mother, despite the fact that she was wearing stilettos, news.com.au reports. Barron, who goes to a private school in Maryland, is rarely photographed in public, due to an unwritten rule that presidents' children are off-limits for the media, though photos are considered acceptable if he is with his parents. (Barron recently received a large gift from the government of Mongolia.)
