cant tell thru all the leaves... but it looks too squat ... the leaves arent being held up in the stems ... perhaps planted to deep???

It could be a fall-blooming species. Check starting in late summer through whenever the ground freezes to see if it blooms then.

Yes, look for the small pink flowers from August onwards - the leaves will have disappeared by then. It's Cyclamen hederifolium, one of the hardy cyclamen. It's planted just fine. Here are some of mine (28th August).
