    you can use something like apoxie sculpt to repair then blend in to match texture and paint to blend.

    @Museum Man Thanks for the advice, but it's a bit late unfortunately. Nobody replied so I just had to figure it out myself.

    If anyone has a similar repair in the future, all I did was squirt some super glue in the crack and then carefully lifted the upper jaw to make the space that needed filling as small as possible. I then filled it with polyfilla which you use to fill small holes/cracks in walls and then painted with watercolours and finished with varnish.
