Default Very weird fermentation

When you say nothing is happening in the fermenter, do you mean it just looks like flat beer? Is there any foam (krausen) on top?

every fermentation I have had has been different, from the one that took 72 hours to start, to the carboy volcano I had after 6 hours!!!
