Injured nail

My beardie was running around and tries to climb a blanket up to a window to loom out. He couldn’t get up more than 4” and he dropped to the floor landing on all four. He did raise his one foot a bit and then he did more running around. He appeared to be fine. About 45 minutes to an hour later I noticed his nail was injured. Not sure if I should do anything with it or not. He is about 1.5 years old and a very active guy who does not like to stay in his tank if it is nice out.

How do I know if there is an infection in his nail? I feel so bad for him. He is still eating, drinking and pooping but not much for movement, which I am guessing is due to pain. Is there anything I can do to help him? This happened on Thursday. Here is an updated picture from today. We have been putting raw honey on it.

Not much you can do, honey is good for any wound but hopefully he won't bite at the nail. It doesn't look infected [ swollen, black, etc ] so it should heal up O.K .
