Welcome to the forums,

I do see the problem with your budgie's beak. From the pictures I gather that this is one of your chicks.
Did this budgie hatch with the beak disability or did this happen as the result of a severe injury while still on the nest (possibly an attack from an adult budgie)?
Was the budgie able to eat seeds at an earlier stage of his life or not?

From the pictures, I can't tell just how affected the beak functions truly are, but for the budgie to not be able to crack seeds and eat them, he must by now be on a diet of soft foods, right?
At this point is the budgie able to eat the soft food on his own or have you been hand feeding him? Does this budgie have a mate who feeds him at times?

Given how serious the condition is, it would be best for you to have the professional advice from an avian vet specialist. Depending on the case, the vet may file down the lower mandible to make it easier for your budgie to (re)gain the ability to eat independently.

EDIT: I understand that it may be quite difficult to find a qualified avian professional where you live and if you can't find an avian or exotics vet, you can try to find a regular vet who has experience with birds.
If possible, the vet can even contact an avian specialist for further advice/recommendation.
This link may be of use, it seems this clinic has avian services: https://www.facebook.com/PetVetVeter...=page_internal

Given the fact this young budgie hatched with such an apparent and severe disability/deformity, it's not at all advisable that you let this chick's parents to breed again, because the chances for you to get more chicks with varying disabilities/deformities are much higher too and it's not worth to risk this.
This is why it's so important to choose suitable pairings from completely unrelated birds. This is one of consequences typically seen when inbreeding budgies.

To help the chick to wean you can offer egg food, by hard boiling an egg and mashing it all up. You can also add some finely chopped up vegetables to the mix. Offering sprouted seed is also a good option.

I'm wishing you the best of luck at the vet's.
Depending on the case, your budgie may need regular trims and beak adjustments.
Given the condition, your young budgie will most likely require special needs for the rest of his life and you will have to keep a close eye on him to see how well he is eating his meals.
