Bootstrap mobile navbar not collapsing in WordPress theme

I had a working static HTML site using Bootstrap and a collapsing navbar, but when I split it to turn it into a WordPress theme, the design is fine, the only thing that doesn’t work fine is the navbar when in the mobile viewport. The navbar will open to show the links but it won’t collapse again, and it stuck open.

Putting the code inside header.php into a normal HTML file renders the navbar fine.
