Help! Please! The yolk sack is not absorbed !!

A lot depends upon how much still needs to be absorbed. I would cover the yolk sack with antibiotic ointment and try to limit the ducklings movements until it is absorbed. Good luck.
He got stepped on by the mom when he was in the egg. He started hatching, and I gave him to the mom because he was outside of the nest. She did not want him so I took him inside and put him in the incubator. He started pushing his way out then he got stuck. I peeled a bit of shell off, then he hatched. I only saw a glimpse of the yolk sack, so I’m not sure how much needs to be absorbed.

Here’s the navel. Any chance it’s the waste sack?
