I believe you mean "the top of the DS snapped"
Anyways, if that's the case, it's normal. Unless the crack is very big, it really won't affect performance. Unless the crack starts spreading or its breaking off, you'll just need to buy a new one or get it fixed. IF you mean crack as in a sound, that's normal too.

My son dropped his DS and now the screen doesnt appear at all on the top screen

The LCD panel has probably become dis-joined from the socket beneath it. To fix this you would need to get the DS screen apart and re-seat it. There are snap locks on the case and torc screws. It's very difficult to fix without breaking it.

How to replace the mic in a nintendo ds?

first you need to take off the back of the ds. Then you will need to unplug the white wire it snaps on and off.After that you will need to take opart the top to get to the mic.the four screws for the top are on top and the bottom of the speakers under those little squares.To get the top apart slid the back of the top up 1/8 of an inch then you can pull apart.the mic is just under the top screen so push the top screen through so you can get the mic out slowly pull the wire out and put the new one in the same way you took the old one out.when taking the back off the bottom start away from the on off switch you can get a tri wing screwdriver on ebay.

Is it possible for the DS to work without the top screen...

technically no as you need both screens to be plugged in but ive heard that you can get a link cable to link both screens but haven't actually tried it myself so cant be sure it will work.

DS blinks and will not turn on

As complicated a console as the DS is, it is not surprising you have a problem after changing a case. Sometime the little snap on wires do not snap on right.  You need to go back in and  make sure the ribbons and snap on connectors are sucured. The ribbon and wire that runs from top half through the hinge needs to roll up one turn before in the transition from the top to bottom half.  You may have the ribbon upside down in the connector.
