Son was cutting toe nails and tore a part that was still attached at cuticle

Has anyone seen anything like this before?  My 12 year old was cutting his toenails and the part that connects to the cuticle wasn't cut so he just pulled on it.  Just over a week later it looks like there is a reddish bump on the side of the nail which connects to the skin.  He says it is very tender and he's having problems putting pressure on it.  Thank you for any help anyone can provide
