As for the beak, well it's hard to say. It may remain "as is" for the rest of the birds life, or it may grow out. If it grows out, it's hard to say if it will grow normally or if it will grow deformed.
May not sound all that great, but if this is a completely wild bird, and the bird is surviving without any intervention from your part, all I can say is to leave things be and hope for the best!

There are often rehabilitators online here who can talk you through immediate first aid: http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/

My mitred conure is missing half of his lower beak, due to trying to start a fight with a blind ruby macaw. This causes the remaining amount of his lower beak to scissor, that is, it no longer aligns properly. What's left still manages to grow, and since he can't properly grind his own beak down, he requires it to be dremeled every now and then.
