I need help training my shy and stray kitten, he’s not very friendly and i wanna get him to come by his name and to trust me more. Anyone have any advice?

Don’t push the matter: Strays are often wary of strangers, and with reason. And some cats never come when called.
What you can do is put food out for him and sit nearby while he’s eating. Gradually, he will associate you with food. Talk to him too, quietly. And use his name often so he will learn what his name is.
Once he has accepted that you are his friend, you can try giving him a few little pets. Again, don’t push the matter. If he likes the attention, he will let you know and ask for more.
