In brief: X-rays
Sometimes, it is grossly evident that a finger is broken because it is deformed, but this is certainly not always the case.
If you are concerned that your finger may be broken, i would suggest seeing an orthopaedic surgeon for an exam and x-rays.

In brief: Pain, swelling
Decreased motion, ecchymoses ( black and blue) deformity, crepitance ( crunchy bone sounds) and finally an x-ray.
