mas and ma's both are correct. Can somebody clarify what's the nature of this?

The original word is maes, but that is no longer used in this context. The contraction that is used is ma's because that reflects its usual pronunciation, but some people leave out the apostrophe.

allan is also used instead of ma's and is probably more 'standard' - ma's tends to be used colloquially in parts of south Wales.
