Spitting Tip Suture
Thank you for your question. From your description and the location in the photograph , it appears you are spitting a suture. I would place a small amount of antibiotic ointment over the area, avoid manipulating it, and have it evaluated by your surgeon as soon as possible. Good luck and I hope this helps!
Yes, it's a spitting suture. Schedule an appointment with your surgeon to have it removed, but do not do anything to it on your own.

You should definitely contact your surgeon for an evaluation in person and removal. It can likely be removed in the clinic setting. Good luck!
It should be removed
please see your surgeon for removal. This is unusual but nothing to worry about. Removal will not cause any structural damage to the nose
