Does it do it every time? First try and turn your engine by hand counter clockwise and try to start..sometimes the engine stops on a compression stroke and Is Under too much pressure for the initial start,..happened to my cub cadet laast week...,,if it turns and still gets a click...test or charge your battery..if it is ok you either have a bad solenoid or starter...first find the solenoid and croosing the two big post..it should spin the engine..if it spins it is your solenoid if not the starter is bad...not a hard job for either...both can be purchased at your local mower place...giid luck

depends on the engine, briggs L-head opposed twins can be viewed by removing the sheet metal head cover near the starter, changing its starter is fun, as one of the bolts is under the flywheel, it can be changed without flywheel removal, with patience. Briggs Vanguard and Intek twins starters are easier to remove, the intek cowling has to be removed to see anything with starter in place but the starter can be removed with the cowling in place, the Vanguard has a few sheet metal covers that must be removed. If you've got a Kohler, starter removal is usually pretty straightforward, take the starter to a local repair shop for a comparison or test if you are unable to determine what's wrong. A decent shop will at least inspect it and show you what a known good starter drive looks like.

Have you also changed the spark plug too. The ignition circuit is pretty simple, from the battery, the Coil is energized, the "points" or equivalent, through the "Distributor" or equivalent, and onto the Spark Plug. So it is a simple matter to work along the path, proving the "Integrity" at each, point by testing. IF it still doesn't fire after ensuring all Leads are OK, the Spark Plugs are proven OK, the Cables, the Points, & Distributor, . IT is either that or the Ignition Timing is OFF. Please check all those points.
