Has your teacher behaved like this in the past as well? If yes then definitely needs to be flagged. If you are unsure then observe him in the coming few days, you may get a clearer picture.

But a suggestion would be that even if he hasn’t and the touch definitely is an invasion you should escalate the matter to your department head. There are verticals in every university that have a dedicated cell for POSH (prevention of sexual harassment) and to address such matters through set protocols.

Approach the faculty and let them what know what you have experienced. Rest of the discussion will happen accordingly.

Stay strong though and do not blame yourself.

He seems to pay more attention to me in class and finds ways to talk to me…my friends make joke about that but deep down I feel like he is crossing his limits. I am thinking to confront him next time he repeats that.

You definitely should if he does it again.
