I assume you can't slide to unlock it. Press and hold the power button and the home button until the screen goes dark and the apple reappears- then let go. This is a reboot. Fixes many problems

Did you press the power button? Does the screen light up?

Try pressing the home and power buttons at the same time... and hold them until the Apple logo appears... then let go of the buttons...
