Twins can either be identical or fraternal.Identical twins are obviously identical, and fraternal twins aren't. Fraternal twins are still born at the same time, hence the name "twins", but they do not look exactly alike. It is perfectly plausible for fraternal twins to look the same, but not be identical. Many fraternal twins appear to be identical, but are really not.

Also, even identical twins don't stay the same height/weight their whole lives. Their height and weight would depend on their diet and exercise. If one was an active, healthy, person, and the other was a couch potato, they both wouldn't always be the same weight just because they are twins.
