I noticed on my silkie, around his one ear, its raised. The tiny feather, that usually covers his ear hole is just a stub and it looks like, inside his ear is either blocked or just that swollen. It also appears to be harder around that ear, then around the other one. He wouldn't really let me check it too well, though. Does anybody know what this could be and what I can do?? If needed, I suppose I can try and get a picture of it. Thanks!
