Tulip buds look weird

I have 2 pots of tulips I forced to give to my 2 aunts, but the buds look unformed.

Please Help

Well its small, yellow, and it looks like the flower in the tulip bulb before it grows, when you cut the bulb open.

It sounds like your tulips were not chilled for at least 6 weeks before growth started. Al
