Is it normal for a guy friend to hold your hand?

So I have this guy friends who always tells me he loves me. I don’t think any of this because I just think he is a softy. Although yes kinda weird for a guy to say I love you to a friend. And then one night we all went to a bar with our other friends. I asked for a drink but I guess the bartender didn’t hear me. He went and asked me if I wanted a drink and reached his hand. So I reached out as well. And then he held my hand while asking our other friends if they also wanted a drink. We were not talking but while he was on our table he held my hand for a few minutes I’d say. And then he finally went to the bar got me a drink which took him a long time cause of the line is long. Still he waited. The gesture of getting me a drink was sweet but what confused me was when we held hands. Our hands did not interlock but it was let’s say about 3-5 mins. So yeah not sure what it means?
