Extra sesamoid bones

Hello, my name is Helen; I'm 17 and I'm flat footed. I've been experiencing pain in the ball of my right foot since mid-June because I was jumping around during graduation and I landed rather hard. I thought it might have been fractured, so I went in for an x-ray. The x-ray showed that there were one or two sesamoid bones that had developed next to the joint between the first metatarsal and the phalanges of my big toe. What I'd like to know is whether or not there is any type of brace or support I can buy to relieve the pain.
