For example, what word would I use to say like “Boys are cute” or “Guys are cute”? I’m 19, so what word would fit me? 男?

    Its not uncommon to use 子(こ)if you perceive their age or social/workplace status to be similar or below yours. A common phrase is あの子 or あの子たち meaning that (guy/girl) in both singular and plural. May 31 '19 at 7:13

I think [男子]{だんし} is the appropriate word here. Take for example this article. Note that [男子]{だんし} and [女子]{じょし} are used when referring to a group of boys or girls respectively, never when referring to an individual.
