They may be in review! Did you checked the Ad status ? There is huge possibility that they are review. Google just want to make sure that your Ad doesn't give any bad idea to users, before they make the ads live.

What exactly your ads are highlighting? Apart from this you should also look into these links.

Hope it helps!
