Hello @Lubna Dabash 

From team-managed projects documentation, 

Currently, you can only create custom "standard" issue types. You can't create custom "parent" or "subtask" issue types. 

Documentation

https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/set-up-issue-types-in-team-managed-projects/

Jira uses the suggested subtask issue type to power other features in team-managed projects like swimlanes on the board, and progress tracking while viewing an issue. To use these features, you must use the suggested Subtask issue type (and avoid creating your own custom issue type called “Subtask”). In team-managed projects, subtasks are called “children” of standard issues like bugs, tasks, or stories.

BR, Olga
