Nerite with disappearing trapdoor?

Zephyrski

Hi all. I just got a zebra nerite today, and when I was getting out of the bag to put it in my tank, I noticed the snail was fully in its shell but with no door? I saw it closed when I first got it, and it wasn't in the bag at all. I did manage to get a pic if it helps at all?
It seems fine in the tank more or less, started moving around and found a hiding spot to sit.
Should I be concerned about this?

It looks to be there, they only loose the trap door when they're dead , give him a chance im sure he'll come out

He does come out, but it doesn't seem like the doors there. I had to move him today because he was stuck in-between a rock and a hard place (literally). Fixed that now tho, and the door didn't seem to be there. Maybe it's just stuck or something?
