It depends.  The only way to claim head of household is if you had a dependent.  To determine if you claim your brother please use the IRS interactive site at:   Who Can I Claim As A Dependent, make sure to scroll down to begin answering the questions.  They will not ask identifying questions, this is only to determine if you have a dependent which would change your filing status to Head Of Household.
