Too young for Zeus or Alexander. No headgear. Not clear what's in the hands. In spite of the bulging biceps, it doesn't look like a warrior. An athlete, maybe?

As the private parts are covered, not classical. My guess would be neo-classical.

Possibly an Apollo.

Almost certainly modern from the style.  Likely late-19th century to late-20th century.
