Well, Its a cockerel.... And not an Araucana. Are you UK? or US? The breed standards for Araucana are different for either location, but neither has a single comb.

Im in Australia :) I have an araucana hen here at home that has a really small almost nonexistence comb but the same colour.

All my other (now) 7 week old rooster are starting to crow but this little guy isnt. So I'm very confused by it haha

he does look like a UK standard araucana cross. The reason he's not crowing yet is because the other one is more dominant. He doesn't want to call attention to himself by crowing or there will be a fight. Crowing is a way of claiming territory, females and resources (food and water sources).
