Does he have an interest in me? Please respond?

I am in distress. I just wanna know if he has an interest in me but I don't know. I don't wanna jump to conclusions so I haven't decided whether he does or doesn't, so read his actions towards me and please tell me how you think he feels for me!

1. He looks at me. A lot. I'm talking every day. I don't think I've done anything to annoy him, so I don't think he hates me.
2. When we pass by each other, there's been several (maybe 5) occasions where he turns his head to look at me. I don't think he's looking at my butt though because my backpack covers it. I also don't have one so there's nothing to look at... haha.
3. He's brushed shoulders with me several times... once he even looked at me right before he did it.
4. He usually doesn't smile when he looks at me. But a few days ago, I saw him and gasped, and ran left the situation quickly. According to my friend, he had a big goofy smile on his face and was gazing at me. But she also said I looked completely terrified of him- so maybe thats why?

I don't know. I'm so insecure about this lmao. I think it's all just a coincidence. I wanna tell him soon, but I'm scared. Not of rejection, but of the fact that he'll laugh at me or something because he is known to be kind of a dick. And before you guys say I can get someone better than him- I'd rather not. I've been set on him for so long now. I just wanna know if he does or doesn't have an interest in me.

All answers are appreciated! Thank youuu!
