So matter creates a gravitational field which slows time, does antimatter have the opposite effect on time? I am curious because that would mean an anti matter singularity would speed time up greatly relative to itself, maybe allowing us to study singularities. Also since it is a singularity made up of anti-matter does that mean that there is no possibility of matter being absorbed in because it would repel matter with the same force a singularity would attract matter?

To the best of our knowledge, antimatter has normal mass and obeys the normal laws of gravity.

Thank you I dont know where I heard otherwise, just guess I thought it would act opposite.

The answer to all your questions are "no". Antimatter responds to gravity exactly as matter does.

If antimatter does not fall like matter, the conservation of momentum and energy is violated.
