I have never had this but have read others on hear describing to place the chick in a coffee cup with a moist paper towel on the bottom (so the yolk does not stick), and then place the cup back in the incubator. It will absorb. If I remember correctly they also said to make sure that you occasionally offer water but not to force it.

I don't see any yolk there (orange-yellow ball), just a piece of membrane. Leave it be, if you feel there is a risk of it sticking to the floor or getting pulled, then gently lift the chick and membrane at the same time and place in a small bowl until it dries up some.
