How can you tell if your rib is dislocated or broken/cracked?
I either broke/cracked a rib or its dislocated.(Not sure but is dislocation even possible?) The pain is less, its been almost a week since the incident but it feel odd. Sort of like when you have phlegm rattle in your chest, except the feeling is on my rib. Will it heal on its own or will I have to see someone about it? The only time it really hurts is when I laugh. thanks for the help!

yes,when the rib is broken it pains and it can only heal on its own

No, you can't dislocate a rib, since your ribs don't have joints. I'm surprised that you're not in excrutiating pain if it's broken or cracked; and since it only hurts when you laugh, it doesn't sound like either. The feeling is probably in your lungs, so close to the surface that it feels like your rib. It may be something as harmless as phlegm, as you mentioned, or as serious as a growth. You should definitely see a doctor for an x-ray, just in case.

Well the fact that it only hurts when you laugh says right there that it is more than likely NOT a broken or cracked rib. Otherwise it would hurt very badly all the time, even when you breath. It sounds more like a muscle issue. Either way, have it checked out. It will probably heal on it's own, and you already said that it's already feeling better than it did. But you still want to make sure that everything is ok.

See a doctor if you have trouble breathing, otherwise there is really nothing they can do. Here's a tip. Sneezing will be excruciating. When you get the itch exhale as much and as fast as you can.

Get an ex ray is really the only way to tell because of how our ribs are located

I have never heard of a dislocated rib. A cracked rib is common. The treatment is to wrap the torso to help stabilize the rib. That is about all a doctor would tell you. That is provided you haven't punctured a lung. But if you did that, I think you would know it. Yes, it will heal on its own, provided you take it easy. If you don't want to wrap your torso, try a relatively snug shirt. Something stretchy, like those shorts that bicyclists like to wear. Pay attention to your posture. Try to not laugh too hard, or cough to hard, if that is possible. Fractures heal in 4 to 6 weeks, generally. Not true that you would feel the pain constantly. When I broke my right hand, it only hurt when I tried to pull open a heavy door. Most anything else did not hurt.
