Do you know how long ago this happened and how? To start with I would just hold some moist cotton wool over the area and apply gentle pressure until the bleeding stops
The break has extended quite far back and will be very painful and prone to infection. You will need to take your tortoise to the vet tomorrow (ideally one which specialises in reptiles) as he will need pain relief, antibiotics and possibly the placement of a feeding tube if he is unable to eat. I hope that helps, please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
Please remember to accept my answer and leave me a rating for helping you today. Many thanks.
You're welcome. Hopefully with time the break will grow out and heal but it may take some time.
