Which is the right form, who or whom, in "I don't know ____ to ask for help"?

The absolutely correct form is "whom," which serves as the object of "ask." Informally, "who" is acceptable. "Who" is not considered incorrect in a sentence like this -- just informal.

There is a short posting about "who vs. whom" in the Grammar Exchange Archives.
