Want to be a good friend without stepping over boundaries. I've never been around when a guy friend was going through one except once but he pushed me away and I secretly liked him but that's besides the point.
Friends are supposed to be hanging out more often to support a friend going through a tough time but I usually keep those recently broken up friends at a distance because I don't wanna see them all sad. I've never been in a relationship so I didn't understand what it was like go through that. Now I somewhat do and I feel bad for being oblivious so now I want to be different.

For the most part, leave him alone. If he needs you, he will seek you out.
On the other hand if you see him, getting destructive, by all means intervenes.
As a female, you are in a tricky situation and you could get your feelings hurt badly. How men deal with a broken heart, and how women deal with one are usually very different.
A rule of thumb, don't try to make him talk about his emotions. It is not our thing.0

Words are Not needed, a shoulder to lean on, to cry on, is All that is really needed instead and... an ear here, dear, to have extended for him to share his thoughts and feelings with when crying the blues to you... just as any friend, girl or boy. With you just Being there to care, shows you are a true blue friend till the end.
