If pinokio says "My nose will grow right now." Will it grow?

His nose only grows when he tells a lie...

Simply put, yes. His nose doesn't grow on command, so it would be a lie. However, it would quickly shrink, since the truth makes it go down. Which would then cause it to grow again, because his original statement stated that it would grow, and instead it fluctuated, again a lie after the truth. He would be stuck on an endless cycle of "piston" nose.

No because he will be telling the truth in his mind but the information can be incorrect without it being a lie

His nose will grow, then shrink, the pattern will continue faster and faster until Pinnochios head explodes.
