Is there anyway to force the webcam to be detected tweaking some setting?

Btw it should be working because it works with zoom even if the laptop is in clamshell mode (but obviously open).

Hi, do you see the video icon when you are in a Teams meeting or is it not there at all?  If you don't see it, I wonder if your administrator has not enabled you for IP video in Teams meetings maybe?

 

If you do see the video icon however, and it just doesn't work with your webcam, then you may need to look at updating your Teams App or your Mac OS perhaps.
