Does this sentence make sense

Do the following sentences make sense to you?

If you see him, you would think that they are related, but unfortunately they don't.

No...there is a grammar related problem here,it should be:
"If you see him, you will think that they are related,but unfortunately,they dont."
The 1st conditional should be used. We talk about things which might happen in the future.

It may make sense in a specific context.
