Yes, there is an allen screw on the top of the stem of the handle bars.....it may also be a bolt with a head on it that can be turned with a socket or cresent wrench.
Loosen the bolt 3 or 4 complete revolutions and then wiggle the bars back and forth from side to side while pulling up. Be careful not to completely remove the screw as the piece that it is connected to will fall off and you will have to remove the bars completely to fix.

You need to unscrew the circular nut like thing on the stem all the way off and pull up hard on the bars and it should come up, try spraying some lucricant on the stem to loosen it if needed.

SOURCE: Can the handlebar height be
The stem could be flipped over if the rise change would result in a hgiehr handlebar, but it would be minimal. That style of stem requires the steerer tube to be cut at the time of assembly and spacers are usually installed that would allow lowering the bars but not raising them since steerer tube length can't be increased.
Or, get a stem with a steeper rise.

SOURCE: i have a mongoose rockadile
i have never fixed this bike but normally there is an allen wrench bolt right on top of the shaft you have to loosen it (not take it out there is a tightening nut at the other end of the that you want to stay on) then after it is lose you should be able to adjust it but if not you will have to loosen or take of the first bolt down the shaft and that should make it able to be adjusted i hope this helps

A major limitation is the steerer tube length. No matter how many times you cut a steerer tube it won't get longer.
Getting Riser Bars or simply flipping the stem over or getting one with a different rise and reach might give you the added height you need. If you LIKE the handlebars, the stem is the best and least-invasive option as most new ones come with front loaders (detachable front caps) that allow replacement without stripping components off one side of the handlebar. In minutes a Bicycle Shop could swap any number of them onto your bike for you to try.
A reputable Bicycle Shop would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.
