Crease on nose

It's unclear why you might have what looks to be a crease on your nose.  It could be where the splint edge was touching or it could be a crease from retracting your nose if you had an open rhinoplasty; in both of these instances, the crease should revolve on its own.  I would recommend you follow up with your surgeon who can examine you and answer the question for you.
