It’s an FPC type connector. Although FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit? I think?) is still pretty vague. It encompasses a lot of various form factors. More specifically this is the FPC for the Touchbar digitizer (the touch part of the Touch Bar). The display part is the cable that curls up around the bottom right corner of the logic board.
I believe that is the end on the cable, rather than the board itself? But it’s hard to see based on the picture. The connector could be replaced if you have soldering skills. You would need a hot air station, and some solid experience before undertaking that though. The connector on the cable side, is a bit trickier since the cable will be more fragile than the logic board. You could also replace the Touchbar, if it’s the cable end that was damaged, but that is also a super involved repair, just not soldering tiny bits levels of involved.
If it makes you feel better, these are easy to crush when putting the display back in. Have nearly done it myself on many occasions.

Thank you all for the info. I appreciate it alot! I think I will try to solder the pin that is broken. I believe that would be easier than replacing it as its attached to a flex cable? I just need to read up a bit on soldering.. Im not experienced with it and Im afraid there is noone around that can help me..
