All the other kitten's eyes are closed but looks like they are beginning to open from the inner corners.
I got this from the Kitten Rescue site:
Between the fifth and tenth day, his eyes will open and he will begin to see his new world. At this stage, his eyes are a deep blue color. Make sure they are clean and show no signs of inflammation or pus and keep him away from bright lights. He will begin to crawl around his box a little more. He may try to walk but will be wobbly. At the end of the first week, his shiver reflex has developed, allowing him to better regulate his body temperature.http://www.kitten-rescue.com/birth_to_two_weeks.html
Also, although you may be tempted...do not try to open the other kittens eyes...they will open on their own in their own time.
