This question already has an answer here:

I have a question that have 5 tags, and c is not one of them. Without c tag, the code block is colorless and harder to read. Other 5 tags are way more important than c tag, therefore I cannot replace any of them with c tag. But I also want the code to be colored. What must I do in this situation?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The C tag is the most important one; it will get you the most number of views by qualified users. Drop one of the other tags. – Robert Harvey May 6 '13 at 15:13
If it doesn't have a major language tag, hardly anybody will even see your question. – Mysticial May 6 '13 at 15:14

Add <!-- language: c --> before the code block.

That said, I find it highly unlikely that the other 5 tags are more important. Having an appropriate language tag is virtually always the most important tag for a question, as that's the window through which you'll get the majority of your potential answerers.

Just force the language by adding this before the code block:

<!-- language: lang-c -->

Remember to have one blank line before that.
