It may be.....
I have seen this a number of times and more often than not, the nail is not split, but there is a very hard corn in the corner of the nail.
This occurs when the toe is rotated and you get pressure when walking. The corn is from pressure from an underlying prominence of bone. It is just so hard and dry that people often think they have a double nail. See a podiatrist to be sure.
