If the universe is infinite, then the big bang theory can't be correct

Is this true? Because if it were infinite, how would it start at a small singularity? I mean it didn't start out at a finite size then grow to infinity right?

The BB theory does not state the universe started at a blackhole type singularity. The correct type of singularity is a descriptive of when the maths breaks down and no longer makes sense. We do not know if the universe is finite or infinite. If its infinite now then its infinite in the beginning
