New rooster not crowing

Hello! I just bought a new rooster for my flock last night. He is a cochin... less than a year old. I have them in the chicken run in a separate Coop away from the girls during his quarantine/introduction period. He was making some clucking noises when I brought him home, but I have yet to hear him crow. is it normal for a rooster to not Crow for a while in a new flock? He's our only rooster and I have 5 hens.
I have a 5 month old Black Copper Maran Roo that hasn't crowed yet. I added him and another hen to my small flock of 4 Rhode Island Red hens about a month and a half ago. I'm pretty sure its because my Red's are buttholes, and he seems pretty submissive to them. Honestly, I hope he doesn't start because I'm not supposed to have a roo anyway. But he's so pretty! lol
