I have looked all day for a solution but whenever you click on reply to this comment, instead of the comment box being displayed underneath you are redirected to the anchor.

Also when I am in this theme, and you reply to a post, it does not register as a reply to a reply, instead it is just a regular reply.

There is no doubt that I have missed something, can somebody point me in the right direction?

You don't have the comment reply Javascript being enqueued.

Add this to your header, just before the wp_head() call:

if ( is_singular() && get_option( 'thread_comments' ) )
    wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );

I added the comment-reply script but the comment form is still not being moved to the correct place. – imHavoc Feb 28 '11 at 22:16
It works on your site now for me. When I click reply to comment, the reply box appears right there. – Otto Mar 1 '11 at 17:30
I checked again and it works. Hm, I must have been seeing something on my part. Thank you. – imHavoc Mar 2 '11 at 13:04
