One of my children did not crawl. She scooted on her bottom, which was actually much more efficient than crawling. We looked into it at the time, and as I recall, most of the studies suggesting that lack of crawling was harmful or indicative of other problems had been debunked. She's recently tested with an IQ of 140, and does very well in school, FWIW.

My kids were adopted from China. In much of China, children do not get floor time, as floors are considered (and often are) dirty and unhygienic. It is quite common for Chinese children to skip crawling altogether.
