There are a couple of ways you can deal with bullies.
You could try ignoring him. Many times, a bully will pick on someone to get a rise out of them. However, if you don't give the bully the reaction they're aiming for, chances are he's going to tire of acting this way towards you, when he sees you aren't affected by him.
If ignoring him doesn't work, I'd say the next step would be to laugh off what he says. Turn what his words into a joke. Again, this may help him see you aren't affected by his actions and he won't be getting the rise out of you he's looking for - which means he'll stop.
You could try confronting him about his actions. Stand up for yourself. You shouldn't have to take this from him, don't be afraid to stand your ground when he bullies you.
A last resort would be to speak with a trusted adult about this, especially if he's causing you physical harm. Sometimes you can't stop a bully on your own, and that's when a teacher, your parents, or the head of your school can step in and help. Bullying is not ok and many schools have a zero-tolerance towards bullying so you could count on an adult to be able to help you out.
Feel free to let me know if you'd like to talk about any of this, don't hesitate to drop me a PM. Take care of yourself.
