Cracked tooth 10 year old

Hi guys, the son here had a fall today and is only complaining of a sore front tooth now. I shone a torch on it and I see a hairline crack in the tooth. Does anyone have any advice? I cannot raise a dentist on the phone now here.
Is this something that needs dental attention immediately?
Any help appreciated as I am worried about this as it is an adult front tooth.

Give the dental hospital a call. They will do a triage for trauma such as this.
In the meantime, pain killers as needed, gentle cleaning/brushing, soft food only....
