I accidentally knocked my nose with quite an impact almost like a soft punch, this was the same day when my gauze was taken out, I am worry that my nose will be crooked or damage again. Any advice out there? I do hear a small click sound, but it might just be psychological?

I would recommend having your surgeon examine you in order to make sure that no damage was done. If all you had was a septoplasty and turbinectomy, it is unlikely that a soft punch would have done much harm, but you cannot be sure unless you are thoroughly examined by your surgeon.

It would take a lot of trauma to disrupt the septum. Likely you didn't do any harm, but it would be wise to have your surgeon check things out.
