This is a risky one. Just from a glance, it looks like this is not a very expensive camera. The cost of repair would probably be equal to or more than the cost of replacement. I had a similar accident with an inexpensive Nikon L series pocket camera. No guarantees, but this is what I did. GENTLY hold the lens and tug it straight. The lens retracts and extends via nylon/plastic spiraling gears. They were knocked out of alignment from the fall. If you are lucky, you can pull them back into alignment.

I know it does not help you now, but this is why they make tripods. I suggest you get one in the future. steve

Sorry, you can't fix it. Cameras aren't made to be dropped. You could take it to a repair shop and ask but my guess is it will cost more than buying a new camera.
