This is for a Timeline Marker, correct?  As long as no layers are selected, pressing numpad * should place a Timeline Marker at the current time.  

 

Here are the full marker options:

If you're running macOS with a standard keyboard (like the one that's built into a MacBook Pro or likely came with an iMac), then you'd press control + 0 (the zero across the top of the standard keyboard) instead of 0 on the numeric keypad.

Another alternative is an open source macOS keyoard custimizer application called Karabiner-Elements https://karabiner-elements.pqrs.org that can be used without purchasing it.  There's a profile that remaps the extended keys over the standard keys similar to how Apple used to do it back when it made PowerBooks.  So, fn + j becomes 1, fn + k becomes 2, fn + l becomes 3, fn + u becomes 5, fn + i becomes 6, etc.
