I think I cracked my clavicle when I landed on my shoulder. How many hours is it ok to wait before getting seen?

In brief: Any time
Since a completely broken or fractured clavicle will heal on its own in the majority of cases, there is little urgency to being seen.
If the pain resolves over a few days and you regain full function, there may not be a reason to seek care. If you have worsening symptoms, or difficulty breathing, then you may need urgent evaluation.
