    The shorter one stands till the shoulder of the taller guy.

    There are two people one is seven feet tall and the other is five feet five inches tall. If they stand together then there will be a great difference in their heights. What can we say?

    The shorter one stands till the shoulder of the taller guy.

    The shorter guy comes to till the shoulder of the taller guy.

    Please check.

    That depends on the height of the shorter guy- they could come up to pretty much any part of the taller guy's body.
