Not all babies develop BCG scar. Ten percent babies don’t develop it. And it takes around 6 weeks for the scar to develop

You can visit your Pediatrician to get it checked.

It may take more time like a month more. All babies don't get a swelling after BCG. There may be a small swelling which a pediatrician may be able to feel. So please visit a pediatrician and get it checked. If it is given by an experienced person, no need to give again
