Why doesn't he know? Your body is not showing?

1. Does the father have the right for any custody in the future in case he knows?
Are you saying that the child is not born yet?

...what can the mother do to have sole custody?
There are many ways to seek such way to deprive a child of love of the father or even knowledge of a biological father. Once reach 18 years old, the custodian may and could lose this child forever.

Answer the above questions first..

The father said if the mother ever got pregnant, he didn't want to know. She left him before the baby is born.

Nope. She's pregnant.

Birth Registration of a child (Non-Muslims)

1. Both parents must have a marriage certificate.

2. In the event of the child born out of wedlock, the Father have to report the birth of the child at JPN and must sign a declaration at JPN stating that it is his child, in order to have his name stated in the child's birth certificate. The father must have "single status" in his MyKAD, otherwise it cannot be performed.

3. In cases of a child born out of wedlock, the Mother can register the birth of her child with her single status as single parent. However, due to lack of a marriage certificate, the child is deemed to be an illegitimate child  by the application of laws (as at this point of time).

4. There is no such "custody" in place. Custody is meant for divorces. The Mother (single parent) is the sole parent and Guardian of the child. Even as in legal adoption of a child, the adoptive parents is regarded as Guardians and not as Custodians.
