Equal right to ancestral land?

We're 4 sons .... do we all have equal right to ancestral land currently in the name of father and mother?

basically, I've had some issues with my father, and he refuses to give me a share .. can he do that?

What's the relevant law here? We're in Kerala.

In case of ancestral property you must have right our property, But  in your father's self-aquired property you  cant right over it.
