Split tongue

My son has an expander on the top of his mouth. I am not sure if this cause it , but the tip of his tongue has a vertical split on the tip.  What can we do to help heal this?

Spliit tongue may be a congenital defect, which is harmless. Seeing an oral surgeon is advised.

Its more like a tiny cut. My son just got this. He is 9. Its a small slit could be from his appliance.
