Looks like the drop fractured the LCD or damaged the solders on the back of the LCD. A screen replacement will fix it.

I agree with Chloe that a new screen will most likely fix your problem.

If a new screen does not fix the glitching then that will tell you that the logic board has an issue.

Sometimes after a hard drop a cold solder joint can form behind the Touch IC which would cause glitching like you describe.

Good luck.
