Question ear problem, or maybe not problem. Idk.

My new gelding has these weird pockets in his ears. They are in the same place on both ears. They are not swollen, not painful, no smell. I can clean them with no problem. He doesn't seem to mind.
The pocket is soft never hard.I can squeeze and empty it, clean it and repeat in few days. I've tried leaving it alone, but it just drains itself if I don't do it so I do it just to keep the area clean. It is white, thick and sticky stuff that comes out. It gets crusty on his ear hair when it dries.

Like I said it does not bother him. it's been there since before the people I got him from got him.
Its just messy.

here I have already cleaned it up, so it's just the 'thing' whatever it is. the hole to it, cant see it a little bigger than the tip of a pen.

like I said, same thing in both ears.
