I kissed my boyfriend and the next day he got herpes on his lip. I have never had it what can I do to protect myself?

In brief: Good question

You can still possibly get herpes even though he had no lesions at that time.
Get an appt with your family physician for an exam and possibly a medication to help protect you in case he transmitted the infection to you.
