On design mode, on your form, select the datagridview, right click mouse and select Edit Columns. Select the column and on the DefaultCellStykle propertie click on the propertie and open another set of properties where you can the Layout-Alignment propertie.

I Found x-solution like this
DataGridView1.Columns(1).SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable
DataGridView1.Columns(1).HeaderCell.Style.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleRight 'Aligns the Header Text
DataGridView1.Columns(1).DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleRight 'Just aligns the cell contents
