Welcome to bike forums. I moved your thread here from the introductions forum so you would hopefully get better answers. However, I don't think we can help you without a little more information. I'm trying to figure out where that picture is on the frame, is it the bottom bracket? And we need to know what the frame material is. Looks like it's aluminum, which is difficult to repair properly and would likely be expensive.

I agree with Eric. First more info is needed, material, location. Second, anything is fixable. Just the cost, effort and method that's involved. And remember that sometimes a repair is a replacement of the part. Andy.

Need to see the rest of the area, that photo is excellent but too tight by itself.

Looks cracked to me. Not enough information to suggest anything beyond that.
