Stars are fundamental units of luminous matter in the Universe. They are born deeply ensconced in dense clouds of interstellar medium. Although the process of formation of stars is broadly understood, there are numerous details that still require further scrutiny. In this talk, I will elucidate multiple methods by which these infant stars can be spotted, and touch upon the issues that are not fully understood as yet. Finally, I will briefly present how the James Webb Space Telescope can peer into the clouds and enhance our view of star formation.
