Ask you doctor. If you are having difficulty gaining weight, there is possibly something wrong with your metabolism, digestion, diet, exercise routine, etc. You should undergo a complete history and physical examination with your doctor to determine what tests may be necessary.
Depends. It would depend on the reason why you want to gain weight and the presence or absence of medical conditions. In general, you should eat healthy, well-balanced diet with possibly more calorie-dense foods. And exercise regularly, especially focused resistance training, to develop more muscles.
Need more calories? A doctor can check for digestive, hormonal, metabolic, infectious, or cancerous conditions in a person "looking too thin". Hopefully, no problems are found. Choosing proper designs of clothing and shoes can help one appear bulkier. To increase muscle mass, one has to work out with weights. To add a little fat (if one is "skin & bones"), one must eat a larger amount of his healthy, balanced diet.
Clean gut. Intestinal parasites prevent weight gain - need paratosin or paracidin for few months to clean parasites and bio-hpf to clear h pylori if there is difficulty gaining weight.
Fruit and protein. Drink lots of fruit smoothies with natural protein from nuts, beans, whole grains and wild fish like salmon and do body-building exercises.
Balance. It is a balance between energy intake and output. If you are very active and burning more calories than you are taking in, then you will need to eat more calories and make sure to choose good quality energy, not "empty calories" like sugary, highly refined foods.
I am 16 and very under weight and I eat quite a bit but nothing makes me gain weight. What should I do to gain weight?
See your doctor. If you haven't already, you should see your pediatrician to make sure there isn't an underlying medical condition causing your inability to gain weight, such as a thyroid problem. If there isn't, then you may want to consider meeting with a nutritionist to review your diet, calorie intake and exercise level.
My weight rotates around 55-60kgs. My height is 169cms. Do I need to gain weight? If yes, what should I do to gain weight. My body frame in small.
No. No need to gain weight. It would be great if you can stay in this range, closer to 60.
Talk to your doc. Intentionally gaining weight is not always a good thing. If genetically you are to be in this weight range, and you're eating well, then gaining weight intentionally may put you at health risk. However, if you are underweight, then a thorough checkup and lab exam may be necessary. A dietician can help you safely increase your caloric intake and gain weight.

High Protein & Carb. Diet is what body builders use to gain weight (carb loading). I suggest you eat at least 100 grams of lean protein per day (lean meats, eggs, cheese and whey protein shakes) as well as at least 150 grams of complex carbs (fruits/veggies, whole grain starch) in 3 meals and 2 snacks. Eat some protein right after work-out plus 15 grams of sugar (milk chocolate for example).Numbers vary based on weight.
