So I have a site I submitted to GSC and it says that certain pages are indexed but when doing site:domain(.)com they do no appear. I checked there are no manual actions or removal requests for this page (I have several of them).

The site itself is a new one and then main page got indexed couple of days ago.

Should I just wait or what should I do? Is this normal?

It's common for new sites. They have it indexed but won't show it now.
I've experienced a few things about searches -

1. When there are enough searches and the algorithm thinks it a relevant result (out of thousands of pages), it'll start appearing.
2. We know G doesn't just have only one index. It has many. So I think there is a little bit of time needed to synchronize between that specific index your page is on and the SERP.

Just my hypothesis. I could be wrong.

Your pages will be on and off the SERPs for the first couple of months
