I am a 22 year old male who is 6 ft 4 in. I weigh 162 lbs, should I gain weight by eating a lot or will I gain as I age. I have never exceeded 170 lb?

In brief: Nah.

As long as you have a well rounded diet, then weight isn't a big issue for you.
Don't worry, age will catch up and add some weight down the road. I was 6'5" and 175lbs out of high school and I have had no problem adding to that over the last number of years. The key is healthy diet and exercise.
