After some (I don't know which) release of Android, you have to enable USB OTG from the quick settings before plugging in USB devices.Looks like this:

If it isn't showing up try finding it in the edit (pencil) button.

I try it but didn't work
Sorry for the late reply
It could be the OTG connecter's problem, as they are often cheap and fragile.
Have you tried using it on another phone?
(Or used other OTG connecters on your phone?)
I'm on lineageOS 18.1, but 17.1 should work better.

Yes I used it in another phone and it works
And also I tried it in many custom Roms and still the same problem.

OK I'm running out of ideas :(
How about doing it in this order:
1. Plug your USB device onto the connector
2. Enable USB OTG from quick settings
After that, you should see a toast saying "Starting USB OTG Detection for 30000 milliseconds"
3. Plug in the USB OTG connector

That's what worked for me. For reference, the toast looks like this:

    Hello,
    Are you on stock Android? If not, which ROM or version are you on?
    By the way if you are on a ROM, it would be better to reply to that thread.
