Hard work writting this

those things are hard for Polish people : pięćdziesiąt, sześćdziesiąt, dziewięćdziesiąt, as those are rare words with "silent letter"-ć

These numerals are a curious case, where the spellings follows the logic closer than the actual pronunciation. You just take the basic numeral and stick „dziesiąt” at the end.

So is the ć in dziewięćdziesiąt not anunciated - it appears silent in the example?

It is silent. See other comments here for more info.
