Thanks for writing in.

Based on your description, it might be a soft tissue injury or fracture of chin bone. A clinical examination of chin and x-ray is required to rule out any fracture.

Therefore visiting a doctor would be ideal.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.
