    The other side don't have it. Almost looks like a skin tag on a human

    Could be a ingrown feather, or a very strange case of ear-mites. We had mites in their ears and bumps that kind of looked like it grew, but i doubt it is..
    I hope it's nothing bad [​IMG] don't think it's normal with only one on one side
