I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'cowboy?' is the definition.
('cowman' can be a synonym of 'cowboy')

'father of a' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'of' could be 'o' and 'o' is present in the answer.
'a' could be 'an' and 'an' is found within the answer.
The remaining letters 'cwm' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
