I fell and hurt my coccyx, but there is no bruise. Is this normal?

In brief: Yes.

The coccyx is a very small bone that is easily bruised or even broken by a fall.
There doesn't have to be bruising on the skin for that to be the case. I can be sore for quite a while if there is a fracture, but there is no special therapy for this other than waiting for it to heal.
