Good day

In the photo it looks like it is indeed healing. It might just need a bit more time. Did you use any medications or anti-septic mouth rinses?

You can go see your dentist. He can rinse out the wound if it looks infected and then suture the laceration, so that it heals better. Sutures on the tongue is very tricky though.
He can also prescribe you an anti-septic mouth rinse as well as antibiotics if it is indicated clinically.

Thank you for your reply and your effort to help me but as far as i see it didn't heal properly and now there's a gap that hurts at the end because it fires a nerve. Really unfortunate. I will have to probably re damage it, glue or suture it so that it would close the gap.
