I would stop using a syringe immediately. Heat and curve a
plastic picnic spoon and let him eat out of it and start
offering food in a shallow saucer. As for the beak itself,
you cannot do anything. You must consult with a good Avian
vet right away while it's in the early stages. They will
know what to do and how to do it if any corrective measures
are needed at this point. Depending on how far out of line
it is, it may right itself but don't put off the
consultation, hoping for the best. It will affect him the
rest of his life if something needs to be done now and isn't.
