Unfortunately it looks dead.
Try to get a refund or another juniper from the vendor.

:-(

Good luck !

That is a stick with the side branches cut off - it's dead and not a bonsai.
Can't imagine you bought this from a bonsai shop?.

where do you live? maybe you can try using trees that grow where you live? I've found trees that are native to where I live, or have similar living conditions in their native environment do much better than trees from somewhere else... that can be done of course, but does require some special care.

Indeed. This time it was me who used his phone, but on my computer screen I can see indeed it may not dead yet. It's doomed though. And still not a bonsai, or useful for bonsai.
