Check if there is any messages in your systems messages file. If there is
fatal errors preventing Squid from starting and even writing to the log
files these will get logged via syslog.

You can also try starting Squid in foreground mode to receive the error
log in the terminal from where you start Squid:

   squid -Nd3
