Young ferrets do tend to play by biting a lot. Biting you though, probably means that he likes you,and wants to play! Give him time, some will never outgrow it, others will not and will always be extremely playful.

also make sure he has toys because if he is board he will find away to amuse himself by play biting ect.
is he neutured ? if not it could also be hormonal.
