custom div as cursor creates problems with the hover on links

I’ve a problem with a custom cursor created with an absolute div, with my test I realized that the custom div is directly positioned under the default cursor, then if I go hover a link I can’t process my JS “mouseenter” because the default cursor is always hover only to the custom cursor… there is a way to fix it?

<div class="custom-cursor"></div>

Scss:

.custom-cursor {
   width: 20px;
   height: 20px;
   border: 2px solid orange;
   position: absolute;
   z-index: 1080;
   border-radius: 50%;
   transition-duration: 100ms;
   transition-timing-function: ease-out;
   box-shadow: 0 0 0 2px black;
   &.hover {
      width: 40px;
      height: 40px;
      background: rgba(#FFCC00,.5);
   }
}

Vanilla JS:

const cursor = document.querySelector('.custom-cursor');
    
// Custom cursor follow the default cursor
document.addEventListener('mousemove', e => {
    cursor.setAttribute('style', 'top: '+(e.pageY - 10)+'px; left: ' +(e.pageX - 10)+'px;')
});

const links = document.querySelectorAll('a');

// Custom cursor change style on hover links
for(let x of links) {

    x.addEventListener('mousenter', () => {
     cursor.classList.add('hover');
    });

    x.addEventListener('mouseleave', () => {
     cursor.classList.remove('hover');
    });
        
});

Answer

You can use pointer-events: none; for the cursor-div – so that the hover event goes through. (you also forgot an e in “mouseenter

Working example:

const cursor = document.querySelector('.custom-cursor');
    
// Custom cursor follow the default cursor
document.addEventListener('mousemove', e => {
    cursor.setAttribute('style', 'top: '+(e.pageY - 10)+'px; left: ' +(e.pageX - 10)+'px;')
});

const links = document.querySelectorAll('a');

// Custom cursor change style on hover links
for(let x of links) {

    x.addEventListener('mouseenter', () => {
     cursor.classList.add('hover');
    });

    x.addEventListener('mouseleave', () => {
     cursor.classList.remove('hover');
    });
        
}
.custom-cursor {
   width: 20px;
   height: 20px;
   border: 2px solid orange;
   position: absolute;
   border-radius: 50%;
   transition-duration: 100ms;
   transition-timing-function: ease-out;
   box-shadow: 0 0 0 2px black;
   pointer-events: none;
}

.custom-cursor.hover {
      width: 40px;
      height: 40px;
      background: rgba(#FFCC00,.5);
}
<div class="custom-cursor"></div>
<a href="#">troet</a>
<a href="#">quak</a>
<a href="#">miau</a>
