My 1 year old kid fell down and had clavicle - collarbone fracture. I have attached the images. On the image it looks like the bone is apart. Doctors told to leave it as such and it will be fine in a three week's time. But, I am looking for a second opinion as the bone is apart and I am not sure how it will become normal. If the bone joined, will it look different from the normal bone? Will it have any impact in the future while lifting weights, playing, etc? No medication was given. A plaster was pasted around the shoulder.

Thank you doctor,
It is already more than a week after she fell down. Initially, she was finding it difficult to move her arms and now she is moving her arms all around without any pain. Does that mean things are good? Or is it still advisable to take another x-ray to make sure that there is no misalignment?
