I have created a drop down column on custom list's form. According to the requirement first value of this field should be "Select" and this is not a mandatory field. When user creates a new item, he does not fill this field since this is not a mandatory field then he opens the item in read mode, field displays "Select" value. I want to remove it from display form like when there is a select in this field, display nothing. Please help. Thanks in advance.

You should be able to modify this,, to only hide on the condition.

Basically it is using JavaScript to change the display of the form, but not any values.
