Try this code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;

namespace CSOMSamples
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            //// String Variable to store the siteURL
            string siteURL = "http://c4968397007/";

            //// Get the context for the SharePoint Site to access the data
            ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext(siteURL);

            //// Get the custom list by title
            List list = clientContext.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Custom");

            //// Get the content type by id for the custom list 
            ContentType ct = list.ContentTypes.GetById("0x01003D7B5A54BF843D4381F54AB9D229F98A00823A04B0C30F5747840B1E74FB62285F");

            //// Delete the content type from the list

You can do it using below code

SPList list = currentWeb.Lists.TryGetList("ListName");
if (list != null)
    SPContentType itemCT = list.ContentTypes["CTName"];
    if (itemCT != null)
