Q: What does "pinched nose" mean?
A: Well...I think commenting on other people's specific body features is a bit rude in English, unless you are expressing admiration. "I like your cute little pinched nose!" might be possible if you are very close to the person. For example, I tease my wife about her "rhinoceros" lip when she sips a hot drink, but I don't think very many people could do that to her without making her mad!

There is a phrase you might come across in literature that is something like "He had a pinched face" or maybe "a pinched look". I think this means a tightness, maybe unhealthy skinniness. Maybe they look like they've just been pinched! It is not a positive description.
