The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon Church") does not have a pope, the Catholic Church does.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is lead by a 'president' or 'prophet'. Church members believe that he receives direct revelation from God in how to direct the members and affairs of the Church. The prophet is assisted by twelve Apostles.
