 You should call your son's Rhinoplasty Surgeon to tell him the issues as soon as possible.

Call your surgeons office and make a recheck appointment with the surgeon and discuss your concerns. The splint is probably just dropping down due to nasal breathing, bleeding etc. Your surgeon will see him and make a proper evaluation. Don't worry! Best regards!
