    there will likely be a cone shaped, maybe light-colored thing near the igniter clean it off.  It likely has oxidized .

    Try using one of those long fireplace matches to see if it will ignite the gas. You light the match FIRST then turn on the gas.

    Look at it in the dark to see if the spark happens from that burner's lighter like the other burners. You might only need to clean the electrode.

    What to do is go ask in the Maintenance & Repairs forum in the Home & Garden category. This is automotive (oops).

    Light it with one of those long lighters when you need to use it.

    use a lighter, candle or match - if you can light the burner with another flame source then your igniter on that burner is failing. You can probably buy a replacement part at an appliance store or a home improvement store or through amazon.

    The ignighter is faulty. Replace it.

    Get it fixed urgently. If gas is coming out without ignition, there is a danger of a fireball occurring.

    Why can’t you light it. Just get an incense stick, light it up but don’t blow out the flame. Use the flame to light the pilot. 

    If your house isn’t well ventilated, the gas is going to slowly build up and if enough gas builds up, all it takes is one little spark or flame to blow up your house.
