In brief: Need to be examined

It may be something as simple as a bruise.
However, there may also be a fracture that needs to be addressed. Only a proper clinical and radiographic exam can tell.

In brief: Xrays

Getting punched in the face hurts, no question about it.
But you could have broken something; you need xrays to rule that out.

In brief: Check it out

Rule out fracture would be very important as well as a dislocated joint disc.
