How can I tell if my nose is broken?

I was at softball practice yesterday and I got hit in the face with a softball. My nose is swollen and both of my eyes are bruised. My nose started bleeding a little bit yesterday after I got hit. I have a really bad cough like when your congested but it tastes like blood and its really gross. Are these signs of a broken nose? Please help. Thank you:)

Well, there's not much to do except re break it if it is broken (usually your nose is obviously flattened or crooked). Your mom must have thought it looked ok still.
