I often face this issue with shadow.

The Screenshot may be checked for better understanding. In this Screenshot, a character is sitting on a bed, both his hands are resting on bed (it is confirmed in the solid view mode) but his left hand is not casting shadow as it should be.

    $\begingroup$ Please provide more information. Is this Eevee? I guess so. Then you have to check Contact Shadows on the light sources. If this is not the reason - for eveything else the question is almost unanswerable without more information, or at least just wild speculation. $\endgroup$ Oct 11, 2023 at 5:54

I can't tell why from the image alone. It seems that there are multiple shadow casting lights in the scene as indicated by the back wall and the lack of left casting shadow under the clock by the lamp. If you're wondering why his left arm and hand aren't casting a shadow on his body, then I suggest turning off all the lights except for the one from the nightstand lamp. Also turn down the global ambient light. Then see if the shadow appears. If it does, then light from your other lights is probably washing out the shadows.

I think you also need to show a render of the left side of his body to verify that there isn't a shadow where the camera can't see in the shot above, because it could just be placement of the arm/hand.
