Hm, been here!!! you honestly just want to weight in, what revealing your feelings will do here.
If you do tell him that you don't feel like just friends based on the touching and words he uses, he may retract on them and I know since you like him, you enjoy that affection.
But there is also the fact that as he constantly does this you will continue to have those feelings and him still believing you're "just friends" might end in him getting with someone else down the line.
My vote... Is to explore the option of you two being more than friends. Two ways to try this... outright tell him! Hey, I really enjoy what we have and being your close friend but I've often wondered what a deeper Connection with you would be like?(something like that lol). Or just go in for the kiss since the physical barrier is often stretched anyway.
Good luck, hope he doesn't do like my SUPPOSED best friend did and ignore me for revealing my feelings😔.

Try to seduce him. Wear more provocative clothes around him, touch him more, tease him, laugh whenever he attempts to crack a joke etc.
You can do it.
