For most people, puberty isn't entirely finished until you're in your twenties, and plenty of men may not be finished even at 20. There's no big thing that let's us know puberty is finished -- pity none of us were built with little egg timers that go off, it'd be so clear! But if all the changes it brings -- things like voice deepening, body and facial hair, full height and muscle growth, openis and testicle growth, the ability to ejaculate, skin changes -- seem to be in place, and you're towards the end of your teens, then you may be finished.
The average length of an adult penis is around 5.5 inches. Whatever length it is at the end of puberty is the length it should be, simply put. 5.5 is an average because most people are around that, but there are also plenty of people with larger and plenty with smaller.
