There is not enough information in your post to answer your question. To identify and debug the issue, the URL of your page is required.
In all cases, ensure that product images you uploaded are sufficiently large to be zoomed. At least 500px width and preferably more than 800px width. The larger the image, the higher quality the zoom. Some small images may not zoom at all.
Also consider installing a Magento image zoom extension that already supports the RWD theme such as Magic Zoom Plus. Zoom extensions typically support many themes by default.
