can't unfold my bike back

Hi everyone

I did buy my folding bike recently, like one week ago or something , so didn't use it that much...
Now I have a big problem , because I can't unfold it back.
What had happened I was in rush folding it on the tube and than I didn't noticed that the pedal stucked
because it wasn't in the right position.
Now I can't unfold my bike back, was trying to fix it be taking the pedal off , but it did't work , coz we don't have
the right key.
Do you think if I 'll take it back to the shop where I bought it they will be able to fix it???

Many thanks for answer

If you say what brand / model of bike you have, and post in the folding forum you may get some advice.

With what you have posted, there isn't much to go on.

Have you just tried to rotate the crank back, as you unfold, this worked when I had a Dahon Speed.

Framing hammer and a blow torch will do the job.
