which parent has more rights than the other , if there has been no court action taken by the father for custody, just his name on birth certificate. Thank you.

If the parents are not married and there's been no formal custody order, it is basically presumed that the mother is the custodial parent. That's why it is a very good idea for the father to file a paternity action in order to get the appropriate court orders regarding custody, visitation and child support.
