I install already my webcam but it doesn't in my yahoo.messenger but in skype its ok,what should i do?

You should test the compatibility of your web cam with Yahoo! Messenger. I recommend you to install drivers for your web cam. These are usually found at the web cam manufacturer;s web site. Hoping your webcam's compatible with Yahoo! Messenger!
