Will the sun convert to neutron star or blackhole?

No, a white dwarf.

This goes along with Fred Hoyle theory of constant creation and recreation theory of matter.
He did not believe that black holes existed because they are invisible.
Note a Neutron mass is basically a Proton with an extremely small mass differential. That means the magnitude of the charge is basically almost the same.The mass of neutron has to be bigger in order for the proton to orbit it.
Two neutrons by themselves cannot orbit each other.
A black hole cannot exist as an entity, as define by mains stream Physics, because there would be no light producing mass inside.
That is the case no light comes out of it;hence that makes it invisible.
It was Newton idea that a mass can be considered as a singularity volume at its center..
This agrees with Schwartzschield radius of a singularity.

It will become a neutron star because its mass is not sufficient to become blackhole.

Neither. It is too small. The next phase of the Sun is Red Giant then White Dwarf.

Neither, the sun is not massive enough to become a neutron star or a black hole.
It will expand to a red giant, then shrink to a white dwarf.

Neither one. The Sun does NOT have e ough mass to become either a a neutron star or a black hole. When the Sun trust in the red giant stage initiates hydrogen fusion in the layer of hydrogen surrounding the core, creating the helium flash, the outer conductive and convective layers of the Sun will explode out ward while the equal and opposite pressure will cause the Sun's core to collapse into a white dwarf star that will radiate light for billions or trillions of years, but there is NO FUSION going on in the core. The Sun will become a black dwarf star, not a neutron star or black hole. The Sun does NOT have enough mass to become a .neutron star or black hole.

Neither. It isn't big enough.
Neutron stars and black holes are what is left after a star has gone supernova, and for that to happen, it must be at least 1.4 times heavier than the Sun or the necessary nuclear reactions can't take place. The Sun is just too small to blow up as a supernova.
What will happen instead is when the Sun runs out of hydrogen for fuel, it will continue to form heavier elements by fusion, get unstable, swell up to be a red giant about as big as the Earth's orbit (so the Earth will get incinerated), and finally shrink to become a white dwarf when it can't do nuclear fusion any more.
To get a star that will explode as a supernova, it needs to be heavier to start with so nuclear fusion reactions can go as far as making iron. The Sun can't do that - it will probably get only as far up the Periodic Table as oxygen. A bigger star can go further, and fusion will continue to convert mass into energy so it keeps shining, but once you get to iron, making even bigger atoms needs energy putting IN!
So once a big star starts making iron in the core, it's doomed. Fusion stops, in a fraction of a second the star collapses because there is no longer enough radiation pressure holding itself up against its own huge gravity, the temperature shoots up and BOOM. What's left will be a neutron star or a black hole depending on how big the original star was. But the Sun is too small to do this.

it wouldn't turn into either but instead a white dwarf. If the sun's mass was way larger it could become a neutron star and if you increased it farther it would become a black hole. The reason is that since the sun's mass is not as large enough its gravity wouldn't compress it to become a black hole or neutron star.

No... It simply doesn't have enough mass for that to happen.
When our sun begins to die, the fusion reaction will begin to subside, and the sun will contract a bit. This will add pressure to the helium-rich core, and that will spark the helium to begin converting into carbon - the "carbon flash" will occur. This will swell the sun's outer layers to 1000 times larger or more than it is now. Mercury will be consumed first, then Venus, and probably the Earth... the planet will spiral inward, and will be torn apart by tidal forces when it's very close to the sun's core.
The outer layers of the sun will be sloughed off, and it will finish off as a white dwarf, about the size of Earth, cooling slowly over billions of years.
