No, because both of you are in two very different parts of your lives, one is an adult other is still a new teenager. If both were 18+ then id say 4 year difference is nothing, and that the relationship can work.
I'm pretty sure you can "date" him - but you both can't legally get physical, if you know what I mean, (like that is going to stop any teens). As far as the age difference - you are on a whole new plane of thinking - you're going to be looking at guys that can connect with you - in my opinion - he's just not ready for you yet - and he'll soon bore you to tears - after you turn 18 - you're going to be looking in the other direction - older guys - since girls develop much sooner than boys - and soon you will be looking for guys that have something going on in their lives - besides good looks. I'd back off on this one if I were you.
