Arabs are notoriously late bloomers. My "old man" (now age 20) did not reach his full height of 15 hands until he was five. I got him at 2 and he was probably only 14 or 14.1 tops. Give him good feed, free choice hay, and lots of love and he will grow up just fine!
PS - it's a shame they did not register him, Padron and Bask bloodlines are very desirable. My gelding is double Bask. If you can find out the sire and dam you might be able to register him still, it is costly but AHA sometimes runs "specials" to get more people to register their older horses.
