ok to look quite muscalar and quite defined...not ripped or huge just quite muscley with a bit of definition can a 16 year old not just eat healthy high protein moderate carbs and fat do cardio and work his ass off and will i not get gains?
what would happen if you didnt bulk or cut i mean you look at people in mens health and stuff and they didnt bulk or cut...surely i could get like that by not cutting and bulking?

I have a friend who's 20 now, been working out since he was 15 and never bulked or cutted and he's quite lean and big, around 210-215 lbs 6.3"
So it's of course possible as long as your average calorie intake is a tad higher than maintenance. Bulking and cutting routines are a lot more effective though.

Im an ectomorph, and I think as an ecto yes you have to. Your body simply wont put any noticable mass gains on unless you eat like a horse. I mean, for the first 8 months it was easy, but after that, you got to buckle down and bulk. Not nessecairly a huge dirty bulk where you get uber fat dreamer style, but you need to bulk.
It doesnt matter though, with the way my metabolism is I feel like I could cut 10lbs in a week.

i disagree. and if you truly are an ectomorph, you will not put on fat unless you eat complete wank.
its a slow process, pointless trying to put on all your size in 6 months in a big fat bulk. especially since 75% of bulk and cuts people do on this forum have poor end results, and i doubt many could argue with that..Royal Marines Commando .
