You are probably seeing some dry wax in your son's ear canals. As long as his ears are not itchy and do not trouble him it is best not to put anything into his ears.It would be a good idea to change the type of shampoo that he uses to a neutral shampoo or even a baby shampoo such as Johnsons baby shampoo.
