it shouldn't be a problem if it stays that size. when it grows out, your nail will be loose there. the blood pressure makes it separate from the nail bed. It happened to me in May of last year.

Your shoes were pushing down on your toe.

It won't go back. you damaged the nail. 2 of my nails on my right foot were damaged, and I will have to wait until they grow out. My big toenail was worse than yours. I went to a podiatrist to make sure it was okay. he drained out the blood that was under the nail.

my doctor said it is just not of those things they happens when your shoes are too loose or too small. your toe was banged up by your shoe.
