How do you feel about the situation? Are you uncomfortable around that person after hearing those words? What do you say to them?

I imagine that could be an awkward position to be in if you're on the receiving end. Maybe something simple like "Thank you. You're pretty cool too!"
I don't think it's wrong to not say it back if you're not. They've stated their feelings, and if you lie and say you love them when you really don't, you're setting things up for failure. At your age, the other party should be able to understand and respect if you don't say it back to them, and as long as the relationship continues progressing, it shouldn't really worry them either. Let him know you're interested in keeping things moving along (if you are), maybe something like "I like the direction our relationship is heading" or something.
Or if you're not that in to him and don't see it going anywhere, that would probably be the time to have a honest dialogue and get on the same page, otherwise you're setting him up for disappointment and more heartbreak further down the road.0
