Custodial vs Non Custodial Wallet

The difference is who controls the private key.  In custodial wallets the private key is held a third party (i.e. an exchange), while in non-custodial wallets the private key is held by the owner of the wallet. Whoever controls the private key, also controls the funds. Losing the private key, usually leads to losing the funds.
