hello, I have an ASRock J3355B-ITX Motherboard with Intel Celeron J3355 (2.5Ghz) - Mini ITX Processor.
which has a heatsink to cool the processor, I would like to install a cooler to cool the processor, but I can't find it, thank you for your help.

well you normally match the Socket with said CPU is, to a cooler that works with that socket..

Do you know what Socket your CPU is?

Like my CPU is a socket 1200 so when you goto say Noctua or coolwermater find the heatsink that fits that socket. and make sure your case can have room to fit said heatsink as some cases are too small for the height of the Heatsink..

The J3355 is an SoC based system. It doesn't use standard CPU coolers. The J3355
is a very low power part that shouldn't need more than a very basic heatsink.
If you are having thermal issues the best quick and easy solution is to purchase a
40mm fan and attach it to the heatsink on the CPU. That will provide more than
enough additional cooling. I did the same on my N3150 ITX setup and it made all
the difference in a cramped mini ITX case with very poor airflow. I went with a
Noctua 40mm fan so its nice and quiet but stays cool.

I wouldn't recommend trying to replace the heatsink with a standard CPU cooler.
The J3355 does not have a heatspreader (IHS) thus it's die is exposed. Trying to
mount a standard cooler could crack the CPU die and destroy the board.
