I do not understand... Is the father hamster present in the cage because if he is you HAVE to remove him!! If the mom hamster is attacking or refusing milk to one of her babies then it's either because she is inexperienced or most likely there is something wrong with it and she does not want to waste her precious milk on it when it could be nurturing healthy babies. It's how prey animals work... Also, I would advise you from ever buying live animals in a pet store again. You obviously ended up with mistake litter bc the pet store ppl are idiots.
After re-reading your post, I think there is another adult hamster present and I will just go out on a limb and assume you have a syrian hamster which is a solitary species to begin with and should only ever be housed for mating then separated right away. If you have dwarfs, you still need to separate a whelping mother.

It sounds like you have two adult hamsters in the same cage. You can't do that, please remove the male before they kill each other.

You need to move the poor guy out of there now! Two hamsters will fight to the death and most likely the female is repregnant.

I don't care how scared he is.. You put a glove on (bc he should bite you in fear) and you remove him immediately!! You should not have 2 adults in 1 cage, what kind of hamster are they?
