Open Roof after Rhinoplasty
Fracturing and repositioning of the nasal bones is usually done after removal of a hump. As long as you can't see a separation of the bones or a wide bridge it ia not important that you can feel minimal separation.

Medial and lateral osteotomy's of the nasal bones are usually required to close the open roof created from the hump removal. You may feel slight irregularities along the bridge line which are not worrisome. If you can visibly see the gap, then revision osteotomies may be required. Below the open roof is simply open nasal cavity.
Thanks for posting this interesting question. When a bump is removed, one of two things happen. Most commonly, the under-lining of the bone (called periosteum) is exposed. It is soft. Occasionally, if a huge bump is reduced, the nasal cavity is actually entered. In either case, the nasal sidewalls are then tipped inwards to close the open roof (breaking the bones). If the open roof is not fully closed and you feel something soft, you are likely feeling collagen (soft scar) between the bones.
