The 14-year-old, nicknamed "Little Donald", is not often photographed but he's usually seen boarding the President's jet Air Force One with his parents. He went viral when he couldn't keep his eyes open at his father's acceptance speech after the 2016 election but how tall is Barron Trump?

Barron Trump's height is not publicly available as his parents try to keep him out of the public eye.
Some have speculated that Barron may stand at 6ft 6 inches tall, with many social media users saying that Trump's youngest son would be an ideal basketball player.
A debate over his height was sparked when he was seen disembarking Air Force One with the President and First Lady in Mar-a-Lago, Florida during the Thanksgiving weekend in 2018.
It was one of the first times that Barron, then aged 12, appeared to be as tall as his 74-year-old father – who stands at 6ft 3.
The teenager stood next to vice president Mike Pence during the 2020 Republican National Convention and the height difference was startling as the vice president didn't come up to the 14-year-old's shoulder level.
Who is Barron Trump?
Trump’s youngest son Barron is his only child with current wife and First Lady Melania Trump.
Born in 2006 – a year after his parents’ 2005 nuptials – he is closer in age to his eight nieces and nephews than to his siblings.
In fact, there is a 28-year difference between Barron and Donald Jr.
His nickname is Little Donald because he shares so many similarities with his dad.
Melania said: "He is a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy. He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him little Donald. He is a mixture of us in looks, but his personality is why I call him ‘Little Donald’.”
Barron has appeared on TV alongside his dad on both The Apprentice and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
He made few appearances during his father's presidential campaign, with Melania saying the couple wished to shield him from the spotlight.
But he did attend Trump's inauguration becoming a viral hit online after he was snapped yawning during the ceremony.
Bilingual Barron speaks Slovenian with his mum and grandparents.
Melania has also spoken of his love for building big models – just like his dad's Manhattan skyscrapers.
Where does Barron Trump go to school?
Barron remained living in Trump Tower, Manhattan, since his father became president and attended Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in New York.
The school's famous alumni include Breakfast Club actress Ally Sheedy, Charlotte's Web director Gary Winick and Sarah Michelle Gellar, who attended in 8th grade.
Moby Dick author Herman Melville also attended the school through the 6th grade.
The prestigious institution costs around £31,000 a year.
Barron moved with his mum to the White House in June 2017 and transferred to the prestigious St Andrew's Episcopal School in suburban Maryland – which comes with a price tag of more than £38,000 a year.
Why did Barron Trump become a viral sensation after the inauguration?
During Trump's acceptance speech in 2016, Barron appeared to be struggling to keep his eyes open after 24 hours without sleep.
Unable to celebrate his dad’s Presidential success, the exhausted then 10-year-old rocked back and forth on his feet in a desperate bid to stay awake.
It's not the first time the 14-year-old has captured the attention of the media by looking less than impressed with his dad's political moves.
The billionaire's youngest child struggled to stifle a yawn as he was spotted at the Republican National Convention in 2018.
Melania Trump appeared to shoot Barron a glare as he struggled to maintain an interested expression.
