Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You have to buy a whole new seat. You should be able to get one at Home Depot or Lowes. Just measure the width and length at the widest point and measure how far apart the bolts through the toilet bowl are
