Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I would give it a little while, or at least until the bulb starts to wrinkle. This will be an indication that it has failed. If the bulb is still firm then it may still have a chance.

Here is an article that will offer some tips on forcing these bulbs: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/paperwhites/forcing-paperwhite-bulbs.htm
