My 9-month-old baby girl doesn't crawl. If I lay her on her belly, shouldn't she start crawling around?

In brief: See below

She may not. Some babies never crawl.
As long as there are no other concerns with her development, there should be no significant concerns.

In brief: Not particularly

Some crawl and walk at 9 mo but most do not.
Some skip it entirely and pull to stand and walk between 8-15 mo.At 9 mo I expect a kid to get to sitting and do so with a rather good posture.
