Welcome Joshua, hope you enjoy the forum.
It's not an interesting instrument, it's an infuriating curled tube with lots of holes in it.
Throw it away before it drives you crazy, it's the devil's work.

Welcome Joshua

Will be interesting to hear how you get on
I am still playing the Xaphoon. My saving is not yet enough to buy the real saxophone.

When I start a real sax? Which one is better, the alto or tenor? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Not a stupid question

They are not better than each other, but there is a difference in sound

You can decide which you prefer by listening to sax music you like

Sound-wise I like Tenor. On the other way, I am 165cm and look like the Tenor is too big for me.

Which one is easier to learn and to play?

Height is no obstacle. A tenor is still a lot shorter than you

I have a colleague who is shorter and who plays baritone

Alto and tenor are very similar in difficulty
