Just what I would have suggested too! But if you do use nail glue, be sure to hold the nail until its dry. After gluing, then file or lightly trim bits off so it's as short as possible. Be careful not to glue your fingers to his nail! LOL Been there, done that. Not pleasant! LOL
I've even given my boy an acrylic overlay to protect his half torn off nail. He didn't like the smell at all, but was patient. It wasn't pretty, but definitely did the trick until his nail could be trimmed.
