Hi Francisco,

If it is just a small break it will be fine. There is certainly no problem with this sort of thing for training.  For competition a small break will be Ok.  The rule says that Slight deviations from continuity of surface or uniformity of colour due to accidental damage or wear may be allowed provided that they do not significantly change the characteristics of the surface.

If it is small but in the middle of the racket it would not be allowed but you could still use it for training.
