The official Raspberry Pi B3 and B3+ case has two small holes on the end to see the LEDs.
The one for the earlier models looks the same except the two holes are on the other side of the end. Seems the B3 and B3+ have the LEDs in a different location.

My case doesn't have a hole for some reason.

Mine is on the side and there is a rubber like light pipe that passes the red and green LEDs to the side of the case.

Just drill a hole if you can't see the LEDs

My case is made from Lego. So versatile and so many different designs to choose from.

Yup, that's what I did.  When I saw there was no way to see the LED's, I fixed it.

Just glue a tiny piece of clear plastic into the drilled hole and it magnifies the light coming from the LEDs. Makes them easier to see. There's so many Pi case projects on the web it would make your head spin. I wouldn't even bother buying a case for a Pi Zero. An empty Tic Tac container is an ideal fit.
