I think i have the smallest wrists ever, is there any way i can make them bigger? I know it can't grow as much as muscle. I might be too old for my bones to grow, but at what age do bones stop growing?

Your basic bone structure may be finished by age 25, but bones don't stop changing. Your bones adapt to how they are treated. The more stress/ trauma (to a point) placed on bones, the bigger/stronger they come. That being said, it is unrealistic to expect to change the size of your wrists from bone growth. You may be able to thicken up the tissue with lots of forarm excercises.
On the up side, skinny wrists make your forarms look bigger!

You're correct in assuming that the bones never actually stop growing, bones actually change their shape quite a bit over the years. The reason the bones change is because stress creates tiny fractures in the bone and as your body repairs them the bones get bigger. It's however unlikely too increase bone size to where you can actually notice it.

yes hgh is prolly the only way u can significantly increase tissue deposit in this area.
but at 20yrs old u will not be able to obtain this legally in most western countries."Though the concept is not scientifically validated in detail (it should be considered as a hypothesis rather than a scientific theory), it is useful from a practical standpoint. When training athletes, it is impossible to wait until scientific research provides all of the necessary knowledge." Vladmir M. Zatsiorsky, Ph.D.

working out will increase your bone density, which may affect the size of your wrists slightly. but next time you see a hugely fat person, look at their wrists. they are still pretty thin compared to the rest of them.
as swillybogs said, it doesn't matter that your wrists are small. when your forearms grow, they will look hyooge because of your wrists.
these 2 images show all of the muscles and tendons in your hand. as you can see, your wrist is little more than a tube for tendons. there isn't anything there to grow.
