I would suggest you to visit the dentist for proper check up, but it doesn't seem to be damaged badly. Normally getting hit on a muscle causes it to bruise, resulting in pain every time the muscle is used, but heals over time. Just to make sure that you don’t receive any more damage as your jaw will be more prone to long term effects, consult a doctor.
