Brief Answer:
cutaneous vessel most likely

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query,
I've reviewed the image,

The blood vessel in the picture is a cutaneous vessel and is absolutely normal. It is usually found in those who either do excessive scrubbing or repeated rubbing of the nose.

Just relax and ignore it.
Any further questions are always welcome.

Stay healthy
Thanks and regards
