unhealthy(weight and appearance)

I am a 19 year old male currently attending college at a state university. I am 6'3'' and I weigh 155 pounds. When I started college I weighed around 165 and I was looking to gain around 20 pounds but nothing I do has worked. I also look very pale and people often ask me if I am sick. I get 14 meals a week at a buffet dining center that is 30 seconds from where I live and I also work there so I get another free meal 6 days a week. I no longer regularly exercise, but I walk around my extremely large campus for well over an hour each day going to and from classes. No doctor has ever said anything about my low weight even when I bring up my concern that I weigh 10 pounds less than I did 6 months ago. Is this healthy? If not what can I do?

Relax and enjoy being slim while you can. There's a really good chance that you'll be gaining weight as you age. My husband at the age of 19 was 6'1" and weighed what you do. As he aged he started gaining and now weighs 245. The same thing happened to my brother.
