I am well aware that an opposite side injury can effect antler growth, but this guy appears to be fine.
Would you cull him? What's your guess on his age? This is a Caldwell County buck

That might be his second set of antlers as he looks pretty young. I wouldn't burn a tag on him this season.

2 yr old main fame 6 with a broken brow? Nope. He would walk IMO.

Also it kinda looks like a different deer in the last pic.

I said yes because i hate those crab claw horns .
Looking at his face he looks like a 3.5 yr old to me and if in fact it is his second set hes not going to be very much just looks like a deer i wouldn't want around but thats just me .

Looks 2.5 to me, so I'd give him a year.

Looks barely 2 too me. I will take a messed up buck in a minute, even on my small place, but I'd have to wait on him at least one more year, to see if he could put some of that young mass to work.

Thanks for the feedback. The third pic might be a different buck...went through a ton of photos and might have out grouped them in incorrect folders. I typically wait to decide on classifying 'culls' until they are 3.5 - this one just stuck out as very different...didn't know what to think. I figured him at 2.5

Nope, I'd see what they do next year and then think about it.

That is 2 different bucks. It does not look like either will make the AR spread minimum. If you are buck heavy in those age classes then take him if you can. If you are still needing bucks then it might be worth keeping them. I have younger crabclaw deer become really big mainframe 8's.
