    Depends on what the gunk looks like. If it's just waxy, he may just need his ears cleaned. Just use a soft tissue on the parts you can see, do not go any deeper than the outer parts. But if it is chunky, sorta like coffee grounds then it could be ear mites. If he is scratching at his ears and also causing sores on his face from the scratching, then you really should have a vet take a look at him. Kira had ear mites and an untreated ear infection when I got her and it let to a very expensive and risky surgery.
