Hi @ramizmanked, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

The comment form has the novalidate attribute at the moment, which prevents client-side validation from being performed due to concerns about browsers implementing validation in very different ways, per discussion in #15080.

We're now re-evaluating that decision in #47595, let's continue the discussion there.
