    The if statement isn't working because you have initialised c inside the try block
     char c = br.readLine().charAt(0);
    This isn't available outside that block so the if statement is comparing an empty character to each of the letters you're trying to guess.
    As to displaying the letters, best way I can see is to do another array called results or whatever filled with '_' and replace the _ with the letter if the guess is right and then print the array each time.
