When to follow up again, if an offer is made and company didn't follow up in couple of days?

I recieved an offer through email from a startup couple of days ago and I replied on it with a few questions. So far I haven't heard back from them. Should I follow up to open up a conversation or I just simply wait for their reply.? I haven't negotiated on the salary they offered to me and found to be decent enough. Any suggestions?

    You may follow up again once you have another offer. Otherwise you’re the beggar here and beggar has no power.

      Make sense, but what could have made them wait so long when they have made the offer? I have an offer from other company too, but it is lesser than what they have proposed.

      Tbh dude you can follow up right now with the recruiter. If they want you they will give you that offer.

    An offer is just that, an offer. It has an implied expiration, and if you do not accept, they are under no requirement to negotiate.
    If it was a real offer letter, with title, salary, and start date, it also usually has a “response due by” date or a “time is of the essence” clause.
    So tread lightly, and make sure the offer is still in play. CALL, do not email, and speak to the one in charge in HR. Then, discuss if a negotiation is possible at all - they may say take it or leave it, as in right now.

    Yep. You can send a gentle reminder email. Sometimes people get busy and forget to respond and a gentle reminder is all they need.
