Jessies beak is overgrown. You should visit a VET to correct this. Otherwise a split in the too long beak could happend every time again.

I agree with @Bee62
The beak is long enough that it has probably become uncomfortable for the tort. A vet can trim it down for you or if you are good with a Dremel tool you can grind it down yourself.

Leopards are very stubbern when it comes to trimming. Take a nail clipper and trim the sides to. Clip them ;) Plain nailfile job will take ages, good luck
