I want to make a block with a custom model, but i don't know which format of a model to take - .obj or .json? Please help.

Vanilla Minecraft uses .json…

Vanilla Minecraft uses .json because it's easy to write and import. I suggest using that for simple blocks like standard cubes. However if .json is not enough (ie. your model is too complex or large) then you can use .obj .

-Note that JSON models are limited to one axis of rotation per cube. OBJ does not have this limitation.
