Add a line feed character - CHR(10) - to your message.

You do know how to concatenate, don't you? Anyway, I created a small form and added an alert (my_alert) and a when-new-form-instance trigger with the following code:
DECLARE 
	the_text VARCHAR2(80) := 'A text with here '||chr(10)||'a line feed'; 
	al_id ALERT; 
	al_button Number; 
BEGIN 
	al_id := FIND_ALERT('MY_ALERT'); 
	SET_ALERT_PROPERTY(al_id, alert_message_text, the_text); 
	al_button := SHOW_ALERT( al_id ); 
END;
the code is a slight modification of the one found in the online help.

It will look like this:
