Check Your WordPress Discussion Setting
Yes, this might be the biggest reason why you might not see the WordPress Comment for your blog posts, this is the same exact problem that was causing the problem with my site too.
My New blog posts had WordPress comment form whereas it has disappeared from the posts older than 14 days.
I have checked the box of Automatically close comments on posts older than 14 days, and it was hiding the comment box from blog posts that were posted before 14 days.
For checking it go to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Discussion and check whether these two options are checked or unchecked
Make sure you have not checked that box.
Also uncheck the box where it’s written User must be registered and logged in to comment
Just do this much and your WordPress comment forms will reappear from old posts.
Check Individual Post settings
On the posts where the comment form is not showing up, check whether the comments are enabled on those posts.
