Black dots on the comb could be parasites or fowl pox.

That looks like dried blood as in aggression from another bird. Do you have another rooster? 

 

This doesn't look like anything serious to me. But always keep an eye on things! :-)

Lots of people keep extra roosters in bachelors quarters. The ratio of rooster to hen is 1 roo to 8 to 10 hens. Any less hens and roosters can over mate hens to the point of killing them, not to mention killing other roosters!

 

So no, don't get rid of him. This doesn't look like horrible aggression. As long as the other rooster doesn't hurt him any worse than this, you might be able to keep them together. Give roosters plenty of space to get away from each other however. And definitely keep the ratio proper and you should be good to go with more than 1 rooster. :-)

I believe there is a strong possibility that this is not caused by another rooster. I have seen scabs on roosters from being picked on and this does look the same, but black spots on the ears???? Maybe. Observe closely. These type of marks could also be from mites and other parasites.
