Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. It is common for this to get stuck in the engine due to years of expansion and contraction. In most cases you will need to use a small pry bar or large screw driver to put through the end of the thermostat to pry it out. You need to try turning it slightly also when doing this. In some cases I have had to heat up the metal around the thermostat to free it up. I hope this helps. If you still have trouble please let me know.
