  • If it's that tender, take him to doc. If it wasn't broken, then it wouldn't hurt except for the brusing maybe.

  • My son broke my nose by throwing his head back and hitting me. The Dr looked at it 6 months later and said he would have to re-break it to set it back. No way, it hurt me for 2 months. I would think the sooner you get it set back the better.
