show form input box if link clicked

I have comment form for every posts. I would like to show the input box only if the comment link is clicked.

$  ("*#comment_form").hide();
$  (".comment_link").click (function(){
  $  ("#comment_form").show(); // problem here...

I have used this script above to hide all comment boxes ( comment div) on page load. and when the comment link is clicked, i want to show one comment box for that particular post.

<a class="comment_link href="#">Comment</a>
<div id="comment_form>
<form id="form_comment" action="docomment.php" method="post">
 <input type="text" name="comment">
