33 Male Might Have Broken Rib

My boyfriend was out with his son and they decided to roll down a hill. The BF said that he chose to go faster and all of a sudden he hit his ribs and heard a pop and now it's very painful. He refuses to go to the hospital to get it checked out, insisting that if he did fracture or break a rib there's nothing anyone can do for him and he doesn't feel like it "punctured anything." I'm still annoyed and want him to at least get it checked out, but he's refusing and I can't very well force him. Is he right?

He might not feel like it punctured anything, but it could have. He should get an x-ray, at the very least on an outpatient basis if he refuses the emergency room.
