After the presidio you went back to the frog father and got a crab thug. I didn't relies this till I saw someone with it and I wondered if I wasn't able to get him cause I was a but it turns out after 4 hours of questing and making a different to get to it again it seems that I am one of the in the game to not have one due to a glitch. Please help me find out what went wrong.

Hmm.. that is strange. You are talking about Birgus Latro right? Well I think everyone can get him. My brother is a musketeer and he has him. I also see a lot of bucs who have him as well. Try making another pirate and see if you get him.
Hopes this helps!

The type of Presidio Companion you receive isn't based on class, but on how your parents died:
Eaten by Skysquid - Birgus Latro ( that's your crab thug if you want him, chose the Squid. )
Lost Treasure Hunting - Lucky Jack Russell
Lost in Storm - Milo Greytail
Mutiny - Dead Mike
Armada Attack - Gaspard de Vole

You receive him once you finish the dungeon and talk to the Frogfather.

Note that i made the same again and re did the quest line for 4 hours and i got lucky jack because of the questions you do at the start of the game. In most youtube videos i see of people playing through this i saw them get a crab thug no matter the questions at the beginning of the game

Do they show you the questions they answered at the beginning of every video? That'd be some wicked long videos...

anecorbie explained what triggers what companion. Did your first pirate actually talk to the Frogfather and get a companion? If not (and if you still have that pirate) contact customer support to get it cleared up.
