Hairline fracture

My friend's index finger bone got a hairline fracture. The fracture is at the tip of the bone from where the finger starts. Is plaster necessary for these types of fractures or it can be healed automatically without plastering? (only by taking medicines for pain and swelling) Please let me know if any other information needed.
