It seems it wants to bloom, but the inflorescence hasnt left the plant yet...growing conditions? Nighttime temps?

I think your plant is infected
So you need to spray neem oil to take care of it.

Hyacinth is one of my favorite. Its 1st season is best but next year its tough to get good long stalks.

There's no infection that I can see. Don't be tempted to spray with anything for no reason.

How long has the bulb been in the ground? Is it planted deeply enough? Could be the temperature not cool enough over winter or too much shade.

@Stefan,
I am sorry if my judgment is incorrect. After zooming the pic I saw some tiny white spots and also brown spot around the flower so thought of treating the plant first.
Well, my apologies for not checking with you first the maintainance and care you take for the plant.

I would like to just add one thing, check the soil. They don't like rich soil.
In my research I found that hyacinth works well in colder temperature and in neutral to slightly acidic soil.

Hope this helps!

So...
1. The plant is potted. The pot...is about 6.something- 3 inches wide? it may be too small
2. The soil, while containing some ammount of peat, is a decent portion perlite ..and maybe sand...
3. The plant may be slightly sunburnt..for certain reasons, my balcony and whatnot, the plant dint acclimate to well...it is fine now...but the damage is done..
4. The flowers did open, they did start emerging from where they were, but only slightly...
