I broke my tow about 3 weeks ago, and nail has just fallen off. I can see new nail, however, it looks like its pushing downwards. See photos. Is this ok/normal? Or should I get it taken care of before new nail grows in?

i'm concerned the nail won't grow in properly since there is such a bump when viewed from the side

This looks normal

the nail seems to be pushing down and making this bump

I can see the nail pushing down

it looks normal, but if it is creating the bump or causing pressure it should be examined

It does not look infected, but it is still best to have it examined
