You could have looked yourself, but no matter.....

Starting with OpenBSD 6.5 (quoting from the Upgrade Guide) ....
The Xorg binary is no longer installed setuid, so startx(1) can no longer be used by non-root users. The xenodm(1) display manager has to be used instead.

To set it up:

# rcctl enable xenodm
# rcctl start xenodm

If you wish to customize X you need to create an executable .xsession file.
Linux since 1999, & also a BSD user.
