Foliage brush not painting

I must have pressed some button but the painting brush indicator for the foliage is not longer there. I’m currently stuck with my cursor being a crosshair instead of the usual brush. I tried restarting and pressing all sort of buttons on my keyboard have no clue where the brush cursor has gone

any help would be much appreciated

I figured it out it was due to the size of the brush was reduced to a really small number with the Ctrl + mouse scroll wheel. I wasn’t aware that the brush indicator was on the viewport. Good knowledge to those who might run into this problem
