Can crypted address be compressed?

I need help! I made a paper wallet 2 years ago and used BIP38 encryption. I remember I checked everything when I generated it. Now when I try to decrypt it, it won’t work. I have the right passphrase but now I noticed that the encrypted key is only 20 letters. Is there a chance I could have compressed and then encrypted the private key or doeos this mean I somehow did not type the whole key before I encrypted it? I got like 30 litecoins there after mining all these days. The wallet starts with 6pf so it should be encrypyted with BIP38 anyways.
