He might like you. But your opinion matters the most in this situation. Do you think he likes you? Does he do anything else, like look at you a certain way or treat you more special than other people? If he does he probably likes you.
I used to like a guy when I was 13 and his brother and friends would tell me that he liked me. I wouldn't believe them at first because he would say that they were lying. But then when I was 15, just a year ago, he finally admitted that he liked me.
Bottom line: what he is doing is normal. Many people around your age do it. If you really like him you should talk to your parents about it and him too. Are you close friends with him? Do your parents like him? Do you think that you would be willing to ask him out when your parents allow you to date? And if so, would you be able to cope if he rejects you?
Ask yourself these questions and they may help you.
