Membrane looks to be pierced.
Can you see beak.
As long as beak is visible and clear it can breathe.
It will take longer for the this chick to zip...24 hours or so.
Do you have some coconut oil on hand to carefully moisten membrane if needed?
What is the humidity?

@ChickenPerson you have so many threads started it's really hard to help.

It looks to me like the membrane has been pierced. I'd leave it alone for now unless it's been externally pipped for over 24 hours with no more progress.
