Are you using Adguard for iOS? There’s a trick to getting it to work with Safari (for iOS), where you have to access permissions on Safari, specifically for YouTube.com. I’m assuming you’ve uninstalled the native YouTube app, since there’s nothing you can do about blocking ads there.

If it’s on desktop/laptop, first, change the frequency of updates of Adguard (I think the default is 24 hours) to 1 hour, update and test again. Make sure to never use 2 ad-blocker apps/extensions at once, since that can cause issues. If that still doesn’t work, uBlock origin is my first recommendation, as others have said, as well.
