I want to allow my bitcoind node to support BIP157 so that i can allow some friends to connect their LND nodes to it.
Does it support it by default?
Or do i need to explicitly enable it?

Bitcoin Core 0.21+ support BIP 157, but not necessarily by default. In 0.21, it is default to off. You can enable it by adding peerblockfilters=1 to your bitcoin.conf file.
