A: No, why would you think that; assuming you don't literally kick him? You have no obligation to allow him to stay in your home.

A: He is not your child and you have no legal responsibility for him. His parents have the legal responsibility for him. You may have some issues in regard to "kicking him out" which would fall in the category of landlord/tenant law if he refuses to leave if/when you ask him to.

A: He is your guest. You have every right to withdraw your permission for him to stay in your own home.
