This is an image of a typical heat register that is operational

When inspecting the adjacent bathroom, this image verified no heat flow

It could be a blocked or pinched heat run or maybe the builder installed the register boot and never connected to the duct-work.

The most likely cause was confirmed in the crawlspace. The flex-duct from the trunk line had separated from the connection for the wall stack.

The prior occupant was paying to heat their crawlspace.

Wall stack with no flex duct connected

The repair for this problem was simple; a few sheet metal screws and duct tape

As a part of my Home Inspection, I verify that each heat register is producing a reasonable amount of heat for the space.
