Post pictures of the enclosure and the versicolor. It may just need some more time to push itself out. In the mean time don't touch it or you may make it worse.

There really isn't anything you can do. Even if you can get it out the chances of it surviving are slim

That enclosure... Is there dirt on the bottom? This species requires a bit of humidity so that may be why he's having trouble.
If he does make it I would suggest an enclosure with a stick or some bark with some fake foliage opposed to plastic sporks...

The first piece of advice given in this situation should have been to add a few droplets of water around the slings web to raise the humidity..

If the sling made it you need to move it to a more suitable enclosure in a day or so once it hardens up..
