    I'm assuming you've downloaded mountain lion through the app store?  When the download completes, you'll get a window popup asking about installing.  Have you seen this?

     

    Check and see if your download is in progress.  Open the app store >> click purchases at the top.  Does it show as downloading?  Paused?

     

    If the download completed, and you didn't get an installer popup, you can check for it in your /Applications folder.  It'll be named something like "install os x mountain lion".  If it's there, double click it.
