It's possible he has a cleft palate....you could take him to a vet to see what they say. If he does latch onto a nipple, but then drops it shortly, he may be developing fading kitten syndrome, where they will barely latch one, then drop it and nurse very little....then doesn't latch on at all and shows no interest in nursing, and then kitten dies usually within a week or ten days. The momacat usually shows no interest in the kitten even it if crawls away from the other kittens into a corner. Just one of those things that happen.
