Hi Rakesh,
You need to create javascript custom button and check condition accordingly,
var field = field_Api;
e.g. if(field == 'yes' || field == ''No || field == 'unknown'){
// close show some alert or do nothing
Let me know if this helps you to solve your problem.

Hello Rakesh,
    if you change your button type to Execute JavaScript, and run the  little script  before the redirect, that could work. Basic script flow would be: 


if(Cx interested = "unknown"){'/apex/<whatever your page is>');

alert("Nice try, think again.");

Thanks guys. Let me explain in detail.
There are two buttons on lead. 1.Convert, 2. Do not send
Clicking on convert opens a visual force page, while do not send is a java script button.
The requirement is, when either of these buttons are pressed a validation need to fire if the picklist value is selected as "unknown" for the field "cx interested?" on lead.  This field has 3 picklist values: Yes/No/unknown. The validation should fire only when the value is selected as "Unknow"
Now pls tell me what changes i need to make in visual force page and java script button.
