Not much can be determined by the photo you posted without seeing preops and post-ops. Even after surgery I tell patients that the nose may never be perfectly straight. If you want a revision you will have to wait a full year.
Crooked nose after rhinoplasty
Thank you for your question!
It is understandable that you are
concerned. Changes after rhinoplasties vary with
every patient and what you are experiencing is not uncommon.
It is important to keep in mind that it
is early to pass a final judgment. Usually, a year is required before formulating how
your nose will be, but longer with a thick skin. Even then, your nose will keep
shaping itself to complement your face for better results in the years to come.
My best recommendation at the moment is
to be patient, allow nature to take its course and edema subsides for better
results. There is no doubt that once the swelling resolves, more definition and
shape will be achieved and you should be happier with the results.
Also, it is important that you keep
communicating with your surgeon and work as a team together to achieve the best
Congratulations on your surgery and remain positive!

Don't feel your nose
It is important to realize that we do rhinoplasties to improve the appearance of the nose and not its feel. After surgery there is always some irregularity or bump that you can feel. As long as it is not visible, don't worry about it. The mild deviation (crookedness) that you notice is so subtle that nobody will notice it. It is not worth trying to fix it. The nose looks good at this stage and you should leave it alone unless it gets worst with time.
It would be instructive to look at preop photos and see if a deviation was present previously. Sometimes surgery can unmask prior deformities. Discuss with your surgeon if an attempt at correcting a deviation was performed to understand why you notice one now. The nasal bones may need some additional rasping to correct that bump you notice.
