    it is slang of ไม

    ex
    ทำไม? why ทำมัย

    Thai don't have grammar. So they used มั้ย instead >> ? <<
    for example

    Do you have any hobbies? = คุณมีงานอดิเรกมั้ย
    Do you wanna hang out with us? = คุณอยากไปเที่ยวกับเรามั้ย
    Do you like hamburgers? = คุณชอบแฮมเบอร์เกอร์มั้ย (คุณชอบแฮมเบอร์เกอร์ไหม)

    Both มั้ย and ไหม you can use.

    S + V + ing or action + มั้ย = Question
