no, because he was never born, so he never gestated and never needed an umbilical cord

probably not, but I think the question is whether the ficticious adam would have had a navel based on what we have been told about his origins.

He probably had a big old scar where his rib was ripped out to make Eve though.

seeing as the methods for keeping records are getting more and more secure, then I am sure some data will survive. however, you are correct in supposing that a lot will be lost or mythologised. If you are interested in this idea, then i suggest you read "A Canticle for Leibowitz".
Its central theme is the idea of how the past can change people's perceptions of deeds ad other people, however, it is also quite short and easy to read. It is sci-fi, but not in a star wars, star trek kind of way.

According to the Prophet Muhammad, Allah created Adam making him 90 ft. tall. That would make his navel the size of a football.

Islamic Source
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (Muhammad) said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall (90 feet or 30 meters). . . Source – Sahih Bukhari Vol. 4, Book 55, No. 543

Kind Regards

Yes.
Adam was the first archetypal man, therefore Adam [and Eve] was created with a navel- just as Adam was created with adult teeth, without having had milk teeth. According to Philip Gosse [in a book called "Omphalos"- Greek for navel], the whole history of the universe, apparently going back thoudsands of millions of years was built into it at the moment of creation.

Obviously this can't technically be disproven but isn't it a bit of a cop-out explanation?
Certainly- but a wonderful cop-out. Actually, from a creationist's view, no, it isn't. It explains all of the apparent signs of great age and long history for the earth perfectly and gives a good reason for them. What more do you want from an explanation- truth?
As well as Gosse himself, his son, Edmund Gosse [who didn't agree with him], wrote a very good book "Father and Son".
