This guy I like connected well with me, much better than other guys I was involved with. He tried to drop subtle hints of liking me but tried to make them obvious enough. I didn’t know how to reciprocate but I tried. He ended up being distant. Shortly after he distanced himself from me, his friend brought up his ex girlfriend in their conversation. I was sitting behind them and I could hear them talking. He said he doesn’t want to say his exes name with me around and that he didn’t want to talk about it. He looked at me and then started to cry a bit. I could tell by that he has been hurt and now he probably thinks I’ll hurt him. I don’t know what to do.

Do nothing. He needs to work it out. You can make yourself open to listening to him though and that will help.
HOWEVER, I am more concerned that you'd be "the rebound relationship" which usually ends badly or starts off rough. Keep that in mind. Find out how long ago his last relationship ended. If he has a broken heart, then don't touch him for the first 2 years after the dumping.2
