In brief: X-ray

Treatment depends of the location and type of injury.
X-rays will help determine it it is fractured. Depending on the injury, you may need to have the area immobilized or you may need surgery. Have it evaluated and treated by a professional.

In brief: X-rays

Seeing a doctor and getting x-rays will tell you if you fractured the toe or not.
If you have swelling, bruising and pain of the little toe and movement is reduced or the toe appears out of alignment, it may indicate it is broken. X-rays will make the diagnosis. Other forms of injury might include a contusion, hyperextension injury, flaring up of arthritis. Your podiatrist can help sort this out.
