Unless you have a good view of their computer monitor, you're out of luck.  Only your intuition and analysis of their scores can help you.  The same goes for detecting cheating in chess, literati, or any other game.

You should accept his comment as an answer as "No, it is not possible." is also a suitable answer.

watch carefully how they play.

if they are say a newbie who is having some extreme beginners look, allways getting each shot perfectly right then its possible, especialy if at some times they play absolutely terriable.  But overall, like crazycomputers said, without being able to see if they are putting a ruler on the screen or something then you have to work it out.  the time they take to make shots can help also.
question needs closing though!

Putting a ruler on the screen is perfectly legal.  When you are playing billiards on a real table, you are allowed to use your cue stick as a "ruler" to line up your shot.

Using computer assistance, however, is not legal.

They may consider it "cheating," but they really mean "it's a cheap way to win."  Sort of like some people's view *COUGH*MINE*COUGH* of using a bridge in billiards - it's cheap.
