You don't. Because there is no need to do that. In a list with several content types, you will need to select the content type when you create a new item.

If you click the "New" button to create a new item, it will be created with the default content type for the list.

But the "New" button also has a drop-down arrow, which if clicked will show a list of content types to select from:

dropdown to select new item's content type
This is how you determine the content type for a new item. The content type selector will not show in the newform.aspx, because it is already shown in the step to open the newform.aspx. Just use it.

Once you have created and saved the item, you can edit it and change the content type. The content type selector will be the first field in the form in edit mode.

Hello,

The Newform.aspx does not show a content type selector, because you select the content type from the new item drop-down. You can change an existing item's content type by editing the item. The Edit form has a drop down for content type at the top of the form.

cheers, teylyn
