First time crush. Help please.

There's this guy in our group of mutual friends. He is 6'3 to my barely 5'1, white to my black (not that I care but as high schoolers we make our colors known through light humor.) and the exact opposite of my supposed type though I've never dated. I believe I genuinely like him not just for some two month romance. Idk if or how I should ask him or tell him. Will he be unattracted by me not knowing anything about dating? Should I go elsewhere? Opinions and advice please. Btw we're juniors. Ps. He is a really spontaneous, loud, happy person like myself till its just us then he is quiet and awkward does this mean he likes me or dosent want me to get the wrong idea?
