Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
A slightly split nipple is not A PROBLEM AS THE NIPPLE CONTAINS MULTIPLE SMALL small openings from different glands. Sometimes due to these openings only the nipple seems to be split but on looking at it carefully you can see that it is just a fold of skin.
