Not quite that simple, because...

1) Parents have 6 weeks in which to register a birth, so the birth registration of someone who was born from mid November onwards of one year, might be listed in the birth registrations for the first quarter of the following year.

There were, for that name in the Glamorganshire, Pontypridd Registration District, 4 registrations in 1895, and 6 in 1896, but you're lucky, all of the 1886 registrations are too late to correspond to a birth in 1895.

So there are 4 possible registrations, all in 1895, and the registration dates of all 4 of those correspond to births which all took place in 1895 and not in 1894.

However, if only one of the 4 corresponds to an address in Ferndale, the registration authorities should be able to eliminate the incorrect registrations.
