Sounds like you didn't insert the models in correctly. There is a left and right side and you do need to fully seat them once you get the orientation correct.

Review these two Apple T/N's

Are you using and purchased the right memory?

Get memory specifications for iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017), then learn how to install memory in this model.
