What meant Stephen King in his Christine under the word "five-ten"?

What meant Stephen King in his Christine under the word “five-ten”? I give whole sentence. That is here: “Arnie was a natural out. He was out with the jocks because he was scrawny - five-ten and about a hundred and forty pounds soaking wet in all his clothes plus a pair of Desert Driver boots”
I have one more Q.
Tell me where I could read about American everyday life such as family life and customs. Maybe anyone knows where one can read about Jack’s life not purist. About their habits, conversation to each other etc.
I shall very much obliged to you.

Hi Vlad,

It means that Arnie’s height is about 5"10 (five foot ten) - that’s five feet and 10 inches. That’s about 178cm.

Here’s a wikipedea entry on Culture_of_the_United_States

Take care,
