Injured Antler in Velvet

My buck has injured his antler. At first it looked like a drop tine but now it’s starting to swell. My question is should I remove it or just watch it? I’m attaching the best picture I could get of it. Thank you for any advice you can give me. I’ve raised deer for 9 years and this is the first time this has happened.

If it’s not broke out of the skull just cut it off.
