I am trying to create a post for a new WordPress website, and want to show a thumbnail in my blog for the post. However, the "Featured Image" tab is not there. I have seen the solution to add this code: add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); to my theme file, except it is already there, and there still is no featured image tab.

It's possible you've turned off that panel. You can check by clicking on the "three dots" menu (top right of the post editing screen) and selecting Preferences at the end of the menu. On the pop-up that appears, select Panels and ensure that the Feature Images slider is active.
