This bike is fairly recent (and entry-level)- it has a more modern head tube gusset and treadless headset.

**edit**

After a little digging, that looks like a 2016-17 Redline Roam.

I  bought it $20 bucks turns out it's not what I thought it was it's a redline raid 19in when eyeballed it I thought it was at least 22 in but I was wrong do you have any ideas on how to extend the front fork so I can have the handle bars sit up higher around 3 to 4 inches higher from the down tube

Try taller handlebars with a 10” rise.  I know Odyssey and S&M make some.
