    My mate is the exactly the same height as me, has more muscle than me and has been lifting longer than me, yet somehow he doesn't weigh as much as me.

    I weigh 210lbs and have a prett yaverage level of muscle.

    He weighs 187lbs and has very obvious and good muscle.

    It doesn't make sense.

    I'm not fat... well not noticibly. I take care of what I eat.

    It doesn't make sense to me.

    Your diets could be different or it could be a genetic thing.

    It sounds like you have more fat than him which explains why a) you weigh more and b) why his muscles are more prominent, if he did a cut and has lower BF % his muscles would be more obvious and he would also weigh less
