Skinny Mee :(

I am 21 and am 5'8" tall and weigh 53kg. My trunk area is very smal including my chest and especially my abdomen.

I suspect i am underweight and have a high metabolism.

I'd like to gain weight especially on my lower back arround the abdominal region because my waist is sooooo small (28) and whenever som1 hugs me they say I'm a bag of bones :P

Please help
