If you gain weight that is not muscle, that would be called fat. Why would you want to do that? Fat is not healthy, it doesn't just fluff up the outside, it coats the inside too.
You need to eat a healthy diet, with the proper amount of protein, and you will have to work out. Or...you could eat 3 meals a day at McDonald's and get fat, unhealthy, and coat your arteries.
And...male's grow till they are in their twenties, so don't think you are done yet. Make sure you get a good's night sleep (at least 8 hours, preferably 10 for someone your age), your body releases human growth hormone while you sleep. This is helpful for your goals.
