I've clicked the little gear and "Customized" control panel. Only Character Styles and Paragraph Styles are selected. The Control Panel is blank. Other options, such as Object, show up just fine when they are selected. Am I missing something?

Try deleting your InDesign caches (this is different than deleting preferences). It should bring back the missing items in your Control Panel.

To do so:

For Macintosh Users: The User Library folder in which InDesign’s cache files are stored is hidden by default on most Macintoshes. To access it make sure that InDesign is closed and click on the desktop to launch a Finder Window (Command-N). With this window in column view follow the path User>Home folder (it’s the folder with an icon that looks like a house—it may have the user’s name rather than “Home”) and click on the Home folder. With the Option Key pressed choose Library from the Finder Go Menu. “Library” will now appear within the Home folder. Within the Library folder find the “Caches” folder. Within the Caches folder find and delete the entire folder “Adobe InDesign”. I find that deleting the InDesign cache folder completely leads to a lasting change. 

For Windows Users: On Windows 7 and above the caches files are hidden. To find them go to the Control Panel and open Folder Options and then click the View tab. Then select “Show hidden files and folders” or “Show hidden files, folders or drive options” in Advanced Settings. Then delete (or rename) the folder at the end of this path: C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign\Version [#]\<Language>\Cache.

If what I posted above did not work please let us know what version of InDesign and what operating system you are using. This was actually a bug in the original release of CC 2019 so make sure if that is the version you are using that you have updated it to the latest bug fix through the Creative Cloud desktop app.

They're not showing up because you have the Selection tool active. Click on the Type tool (the T) and you'll see Character and Paragraph options appear.

I am missing all my tools near the top that defined paragraph spacing, character spacing, and indention. The answer you gave by selecting the Type Tool did not work for me, do you have another suggestion?
