My friends brother saw awoke suddenly and saw a ghost?
It stood at the end of his bed and wore a red shirt and long dark hair. He couldn’t see the eyes. What is this called. It wasn’t sleep paralysis because he rubbed his eyes and said, “hello”

Likely what is called a "Waking dream"---I had that happen once---Scared the hell out of me I thought someone had broken into the house. Even the lighting and shadows were right. It wasn't until it MOVED toward the bed , without moving its legs or feet, did I realize it was not a person---then it disappeared. MUCH to my relief! I would much rather it had been a ghost than a human intruder. My heart still kept beating hard for an hour or so.
Since a "Waking dream" is the simplest "explanation" I could come up with, THATS is what I "wrote it off" as being (although I never had one before or since)-----Now if SOMEONE ELSE sees it later, THEN I will change my mind about it and call it a REAL "Unexplained event" and will have to apply one of my "Ghost" theories to explain it. ---such as "a living person being seen through a time anomaly"----Still not going so far as labeling it a "ghost" or "Spirit of the dead"

If it happened often, then it may be possible to experiment but a one-off is much more likely to be a dream

That is what is commonly known as a dream, or if you want to get fancy a hypnopompic hallucination.
