When he does text me back should I respond the same day some hours later or wait like 24 hours?
And he is acting weird

Mirror his behavior. This is not game playing. It serves two purposes:
1) It allows men to be the pursuers, which, irregardless of what some might try to say, is generally the male's natural role according to his neurological make-up when it comes to dating and mating
2) It makes your life exponentially easier. You stop wondering and are only responsible for giving him what he is giving you
How mirroring is done: If he text you a short message, you text him a short message. If he calls you, you call him. If he invites you out, you go out with him. If he introduces you to his family, you introduce him to yours. If he disappears for 5 days, you disappear for 5 days, etc, etc
This is hard for most women, but that is because most women are trying to direct the course of the relationship. This is how women become burdened with keeping a relationship together and they don't realize they trained their man to be lazy by co-opting his masculinity.
A mature man goes after what he wants and is willing to work to keep that which he values. This method will show you whether or not he is mature and whether or not he values you. Even if the outcome is painful, it is better than the alternative, which is an immature, uncommitted guy wasting your time.0
