magnetic compass needle shows direction of pole . and if compass is placed vertically at pole then it will not show any direction , because the direction of needle is in the direction of magnetic field and magnetic field lines never goes in pole vertically , near the pole the direction of magnetic field is just like sharp curve so you will not get any direction at pole in magnetic compass..
Thanks and Regards
