"Catch a cold" and "catch cold" mean the same thing: to become infected with a cold. "To have a cold" is when you are already infected with a cold virus and showing symptoms. There is no such expression as "to have cold".

"Catch cold" and "have cold" are both incorrect - don't say that. "Catch a cold" and "have a cold" are very very similar. The difference is in the timing. However I'm not a teacher so I'm not sure how to explain it properly.
