If a mutation occurs in a non-coding region then it will have little or no effect. Even if it occurs in a coding region - for example a region that contains codes for amino acids used to build vital proteins - it might not have an adverse effect. For example, a substitution that turns CUU into CUA in RNA molecule will have no effect, since both are codes for the same amino acid (leucine).
