Mixed messages?

I feel I keep getting mixed messages from my guy friend. At times I feel he likes me - he looks in my direction a lot, tends to come and sit next to me/join the group I’m with, gets a little “jealous” when I give attention to other guys etc.. then, once in a while, he randomly asks me about a girl, or girls I’m friends with - he asks it in passing and once I give an answer, he drops it and doesn’t mention that girl again. What does this mean?
