I don't think you can do anything, just keep him in a warm comfortable place and wait. keep him in the incubator or under a brooder and see what will happen.

That happened to a gosling hatch, sadly he didn't make it.  Have you checked with a hatchery or at the feed store or a Vet?  Depending on how much is out, maybe something could be done but as "Naser" says, keep it warm & comfortable.  Sorry :(

Sorry to hear that. That is a common result with that type of condition.
