@Samiullah an approval can be sent to a user to approve in Teams. This is done with adaptive cards. Rather than explain it here there is a good video with the steps at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NDy3tGyigI&t=524s and the approval part starts at 12:08.

i am asking, can we approve or reject flow approvals from custom form like SharePoint page or PowerApps instead of Email or teams ?

You hadn't mentioned Teams in your original post which is why I did.

You can start an approval from a button on each SharePoint item (for example) but there is no equivalent JSON code button to approve or reject the approval and therefore stop the flow. So your approver would have to go into the list itself or the PowerApps form and set the approver name, outcome and approval date columns manually. Then from the settings of the Start and Wait for approval you could set a timeout. So if you knew your approver would always approve it within 1 hour you could set the approval timeout to PT1H.
