Yes. Airlocks are not a sign of fermentation. The krausen definitely is
Brew on folks!

You are fine. Just let the yeast do their thing. They know what to do.

Bubbling airlock only means that the pressure inside the fermenter is higher than outside. Some lids leak and you will never see anything. I have brewed over 100 beers and never have had one not ferment.

Look at this video and tell if this brew is done yet......
