Once your pilot is lit you have a flame sensor that sends a signal to the gas valve that says it's OK to open and light the main burners.

If your pilot is lighting I would check your flame senor,( possibly a rod) to see if it's clean and positioned properly to feel the pilot fire and open the gas valve.

Hope this helps a little.

I see a pilot flame not fully established. That leaves a dirty/plugged orifice. The pilot must be a large bushy flame to establish it's lit.

A model number of the unit would be needed. If it's a furnace.... you'll find it on an ID tag on the side wall near the burner.
