Unfortunately height plays a big part for males. 5’7- 5’8 is like the minimal for female models. So 5’8 for a male is look down on as extremely short.
Yeah they are. I think it comes from the idea that if you are a model, you have to be tall. And it seem typically the well known models are the models who are at least 5’10 & up.

Yeah, I think you can still do plus size modeling. Plus models are generally 5’8” to 6’ in height, and wear a size 10 and up. But some thing I’ve notice with some plus size models aren’t really plus size. Its like they are just bigger than the average high fashion/commercial model, but they are not really “plus size” but compare to size 2 girls they are consider plus size. Because generally here where I’m from (US) plus size clothing starts with a size 14 or 16, I think.
I remember reading a interview plus size model Marquita Pring stated that there’s been times where she’s been asked to wear padding to appear bigger, because she’s in between sizes.
So I would say contact an agency with a plus size division, see what they say.
Also here are few links, that can possible provide you more info than I can share. I hope it helps you out more.
