He has shown interest and his friends tease him about me
Is he shy or am I friendzoned

My guess? He's probably shy. If he's giving you that much attention digitally, but not so much when in person, it's probably because his nerves get the better of him. Being online offers insulation to the shy person, and as a result they may come out more where they're comfortable.
Try texting him for fun when you're right next to him! See what he does. Or just try something else that's small like hugging a bit longer, or putting your hand on his. Stuff like that. Good luck!
