First, it seems unlikely that a non rotating neutron star would ever be formed. If a neutron star is not visible to us as a pulsar, the reason could simply be that the emitted beam is not directed towards us - in all other respects its properties are not likely to be drastically different from other neutron stars. Secondly, it seems that the death of an 8-30 solar mass star might produce an ordinary neutron star while the death of a more massive star might produce the highly magnetised neutron stars. Why such high magnetic fields and how do they originate? This question seems to be yet unanswered. However, do see the following.
