Hi @armzzplayboy, your image links don't seem to work. Maybe post them here instead?

 

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what you're asking so it's difficult to answer without the visuals.

Re: How to hide the category which is not belong in the same product.

See if below code help you to get what you want.

 

Let's say that you already have the current category in the variable $category. This piece of code should give you all the (active) category siblings.

$siblings = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->getCollection()->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId());
$siblings->addAttributeToSelect('*')
        ->addAttributeToFilter('parent_id', $category->getParentId()) //siblings have the same parent as the current category
        ->addAttributeToFilter('is_active', 1)//get only active categories
        ->addAttributeToFilter('entity_id', array('neq'=>$category->getId()))//exclude current category
        ->addAttributeToSort('position');//sort by position

Now you can use loop of the siblings and list them:

<?php foreach ($siblings as $sibling): ?>
    <a href="<?php echo $sibling->getUrl();?>"><?php echo $sibling->getName();?></a><br />
<?php endforeach;?>
