Practice common sense first aid, keep it clean, let it heal. Watch for signs of infection.
Don't know if you know many wrestlers or rugby players, but ear injuries often look pretty bad, but unless they are repeated they usually return to normal once swelling has gone down. You only usually see permanent damage (called lovingly 'cauliflower ear') in really hardcore athletes. I wouldn't worry too much about it... but of course that's easy for me to say, I'm not his momma!
Don't let 'em presssure you. Remember you can always just say NO.
