I am rarely seeing a "Reply" option in the comments under YouTube videos. It is there for a few upvoted comments, but for 99% the reply button is missing! For example, see the comment section of this video:

Here is a nice report of the problem from the last year

If you notice, on the new comment (6 days old) you can reply on and other comments (1 year old) you can not. This is because YouTube have changed their commenting to use Google+ profiles.
So new comments are being posted by linked Google+ profiles + enable replying to them. Others don't have this ability anymore.
Frustrating, I know.
