depends on your recipe and honey. straight meads, especially with heat treated or pasteurized honey often don't krausen. you just see fizzy bubbles up the sides of the carboy.
but using extremly raw honey means lots of proteins and beeswax that'll give enough surface tension to foam.
sometimes fruit will do it too, although i tend to add my fruit in secondary.
