Usually none...: Initial treatment is nasal bone x-ray to see exactly where. Then ice and prevention of infection, and tincture of time. Most don't require anything further, but if it does, the facial surgeon will wait till healing process completed before deciding.

Pain: A nasal bone fracture hurts. Breathing can be made difficult from nasal obstruction for displaced bone or swollen tissue. A noticeable lum, bump, depression, or change in appearance also helps.

Doesn't matter: Most "hairline" nasal fractures are mis-read xrays. There is nothing you need to do for a non-displaced ("hairline fracture") of the nose. It might hurt but that is probably from the trauma. I wouldn't worry about it.
