My corn is about 4 1/2 ft tall already and has tassles. Will it stop growing? If so, will I still get corn?

If it's tasseling at 4 1/2 feet tall, it's probably fine. It will grow at least another 2-3 feet as the tassel emerges and the stalk elongates. Early tasseling is often brought on by extremes in weather. Just make sure to keep the corn watered well.
