Your finger seems to have dislocated and could be small fracture.
You need to get an x/ray done and consult your doctor.
A proper buddy taping shall do the good.
Don't massage locally as it may aggravate your dislocation or fracture.

Hello dear don't worry about your finger it will heal back. there is some soft tissue injury that causes swelling or inflammation of the part. the soft tissue will heal shortly and after the swelling reduces your finger will touch the ground. You must do Hot water fermentation and stop massage of the finger. You will heal quickly. thanx get well soon
