Check for Content Restrictions

When troubleshooting YouTube comments not loading, it’s important to check for any content restrictions that may be affecting your ability to view or interact with the comments section.

Check the terms of service for YouTube to see if there are any restrictions on the type of content you can access based on your location or account settings.

If you are using a computer, try clearing your browser cache and cookies as this can sometimes cause issues with loading certain parts of a webpage, including comments on YouTube.
