Again, it is not empty, nor containing an hyphen...
Look slowly to the log line and compare it to the log format. You use
hyphens as separators, which, again, might not be a good idea at this
precise location.

​The IP address you get is a private one though, so not 'client' but rather
'downstream'.​
​It seems you are hiding behind CloudFlare, you should read their doc to
see how to get the real client IP address. The HTTP header you tried to use
seems to be empty (ie 'dash'.

As for using hyphens rather than real emptiness, I guess that helps
validating there is no real value, ​differentating this case from a bogus
'empty' which would be a sign of a bug.
