If what you want is to place comments or a reply in bold on YouTube to make it stand out from those of other commenters, you have to follow the procedure below.

First of all, they have to access their Google account (login) and after that, they go to the YouTube portal and enter the video they want to comment or reply on and once here, they have to click on the comment box which says: Add a public comment or click on the text that says: «RESPONSE» that appears below a comment you actually want to reply to.

With the above action, it will open the comment box and here, you can actually write a bold comment on YouTube and to do that, you have to start the text that goes bold with the asterisk » * » (without quotation marks) and end the text that goes bold with a new asterisk sign » * » (without the quotes) and it would be text like this: *Comment in bold on YouTube.* and after you write the comment with asterisks, they will give it to you to Click the blue button that says: «comments«.



Voila, the text will appear bold on YouTube and can be displayed like this: Comment in bold on YouTube.

By the way, and if you like, you can combine plain text with bold text in your YouTube comments and thus make them much more attractive and extraordinary. For example, entering this text in the YouTube comment box: *A YouTube bold text comment* and a regular YouTube text comment.
