    have and had

    He a brother. (not / have) answer is (does not have, doesn’t have)
    in this sentence why I cannot say
    He have not a brother
    Or he does not has a brother ?
    I think there is two ways to infinitive the sentence have not and does not have am I right ?

    "He hasn't a brother" is possible but a bit formal/dated.
