Why does my 18 year old son hate his 12 year old brother?

It's nothing physical except the odd poke if he's sitting too close, but he won't acknowledge him, and often ignores him when he asks a question. If he does answer it's a grunt or a mumble. He loved his little brother up until he was about 13 or 14 then it gradually came to this. We keep telling him to be nice and he says ok, but we're getting really fed up with it as they are given equal attention, and the oldest is happy otherwise, ready to start an apprenticeship and passed his driving test. The youngest isn't an angel but we hear him try and talk to him, ask him questions etc. I just wondered if anyone else has similar problems, and if there is anything that can change how he is with little bro or if it's just normal and he'll love him again one day.
