Broken tooth

My baby teddy boar broke one of this front top incisisors I think because he has developed a habit of biting the cage when he doesnt get fed first. Although I still font think its too possible but cant think of any other way he could have done it. Now its growing back but doesnt seem to be grwoing straight?
Has anyone had this happen to them? Has anyone got any advise? I would really appreciate it.

Hi, i would see the vet and get the tooth trimmed, he may need both top and bottom poor little mite. He should be ok and gobbling food as normal within a couple of days after the trim :-*

Deffo see that vet but dont worry - you are right to monitor how it grows back though

I checked today and it seems to be straightening itself out, I'm going to carry on monitoring, if it starts going out of place will c vet.
I didnt even notice for a while becuase he was still munching his food lquite happily! but i like to check them now and again.
Thanks 4 the advice!
