Default little help please

I am on my 13th batch(first all-grain) and it has been in the primary for 7 days and it looks like nothing has fallen. I usually keep the wort in the primary for 5 to 7 days and the secondary for 7 to 14. Does all grain take longer to ferment and settle?

It depends on the OG of the brew but I'd say AG tends to do faster. (Not that I've done many Extract brews)

Don't worry.

Mine usually take over a week for the krausen to fall and fermentation to stop. It depends on the yeast, OG and temperature.

sort of....

You may notice once your fermentation is done in the primary, that it is more cloudy than your extract brews. I like to cold-condition my AG's in the secondary for at least two weeks to help clear some of that haze out.

Just a heads up
