Sizing a bit

So I am looking at getting a Myler bit and have been checking on how to measure so I can order online. I measured the bit he is in now and it says 5 but when I tried the whole twin in his mouth thing it said closer to 5.5. How do I get a true measurement? He really did not like me putting the twine in his mouth but he let me do it 2 times. (such a good guy).
So tell me what you think I should do?

Bump... no one has some good advice on how I should measure?

If he is an average horse, meaning not a pony, a draft, etc, then a 5" should be correct. What size has he been using?

I just looked at your horse from your "barn" and 5" should be the right size for him.

Thanks IRIDE, I will start with a 5 then.
Yah he is just a 15.1 TB but people say he looks like a Morgan/draft/QH. LOL
