    You don't have enough muscle to begin with is why you can't see your abs. What you need to do is to get onto a good beginner lifting routine (lots on this site) and start lifting, and also even more importantly, you need to start eating more calories, try to gain 1lb a week roughly, and if it's not happening, eat more, then more. Time to build some muscle so that you can have the definition you're looking for.

    Then it looks like you already know what you're doing.. Just throw in weighted ab exercises and eat big and you'll get there.

    Those exercises actually only train the core area muscles, they do nothing at all for fatloss in that area. It's a very commonly heard myth that you can target specific areas for fatloss, this is called spot reduction, but it's impossible. Your body loses or gains fat as a whole, based upon how many calories you eat per day versus how many you burn. No number of crunches/whatever in the world will target the stomach fat - too bad, but true!

    Don't worry about abs for now, just focus on building muscle. Once you change that mindset you'll see more results.

    Pretty much summarizes everything. Listen to him. Besides once you get a huge back, chest, arms and legs who gives about abs? They just add to the look, but with all those big muscles you'll look like a tank.

    Your biggest challenge will be making sure your body is getting enough protein to supplement your workouts. This is going to be key for you gaining muscle. I think you should start by posting your diet on here and letting us take a look at it first and seeing if we can come up with some answers for you. I think you really will sees benefit in doing this you will get some serious results. Good luck

    How much kg did you gain for those 2 months? At this point you should have progress no mater what you eat or drink, roughly said.
    You train @ home, which is cool, but are your weights heavy enough, or you need to do lots of reps in order to exhaust yourself?
    If they're not, you should do something about it, since muscles get bigger with heavier weights. For example if you train with a 10kg dumbell, your muscle will enough big just to handle those 10kg, but if you train with 20 kg dumbell, the muscle will get big enough to handle THEM. So every time your body adapts to the heavier weighs, you gotta go on the next level. You can't just do a hundred push ups. Try trying with base exercises, which allow you to put on max weights. More weights = more gains. Do NOT forget doing exercises properly as well.

    I used to be under the mindset that abs were everything too, but soon realized abs were the least of my worries, they will come in time just focus on lifting and eating correctly right now. If you follow the advice given above and change your eating habits for the better you will see changes.
    For how skinny you are getting abs is not hard at all as your probably have a very fast metabolism, however nobody cares about abs if they are all you have.

    Although already covered I'll say say it again, you need bigger muscles to see said muscles. Although probably not known by many, the best way to get large abdominals is to squat heavy. When you squat heavy the abdominal muscles have to hold up the weight and will give you more mass than years of crunches.

    gonna sound rude, but you have to have muscle to see muscle..at 15 you are starting young enough were you can really be built in due time. Heavy compounds and a few weighted ab exercises. I love straight leg raises w/a db between feet..but truth be told haven't seen my abs or done direct ab work in quite awhile so take it for what it is worth...

    For 6 pack ab Handle a pull-up bar with a grasp that is marginally more extensive than shoulder-width. Draw your shoulder bones down and back, twist your legs behind you, cross your feet, crush your butt, and prop your abs.
    This is an effective plyometric exercise for achieving 6-pack abs. Snatch a genuinely light-weight medication ball and hold it up over your head
