I have liked you since childhood is the best option, because "to like" is not used in the progressive form. It is a so-called non- continuous verb. It means you started liking the person in your childhood and you still like them in the present. This tense is called present perfect.

The same goes for I had liked you since childhood, only here the situation is set in the past. You still liked someone at a moment in the past, not the present. This tense is called past perfect.
