I find it amusing but I think i should discourage it but am not sure how to go about it .
Not really something to be discouraged, unless it really bothers you. Cats like to cuddle, especially once they know they "own" you.
If it really does bother you that much, gently push him off and give a firm "No". If he doesn't get the message after a week or two, try to imitate a cat's growl after you push him off (not a serious growl, a "that bothers me" growl, any long-time cat person knows there's a difference!), then give a firm "No". Eventually he'll get the message.
