You may need to adjust your repository settings to see the fork options appear. Here is some documentation:

https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/set-repository-privacy-and-forking-options/

Set forking permissions

Forking permissions allow you to specify whether and how a user can fork your repository. Because public repositories allow public forks, you must make your repository private to restrict forking.

  1. From the repository, click Repository settings in the sidebar.
  2. From the Repository details page, if you don't see the Forking option, select This is a private repository.
  3. From the Forking dropdown, select one of the following options:
    • Allow forks—Users can fork the repository and those forks can be public.
    • Allow only private forks—Users can fork the repository and those forks will be private.
    • No forks—Users can't fork the repository.
  4. Click Save repository details.

Thank you!

But i'm trying to fork someone else's repos

In that case, the other repository might have forking disabled. Maybe you could clone it instead?
