It can be fixed back in 10 minutes. Do not delay as the teeth may move from the aligned position.

Get a new retainer soon. Any chronic poking to your oral tissues is a problem.  Go to the orthodontist and get it fixed asap.

Get the poking part removed or repairedas soon as possible by an orthodontist...both are possible depending on the condition and retention duration. Dont try to bend it or work it as it can move the teeth...
