OK Nadia. This isn't unusual for newborns. The ears do tend to change somewhat as the child matures but in time they even out and then both look the same. This is just the cartilage in his ear maturing and I'm sure he is your son

please explain for me what does it means child matures and cartilage in his ear cartilage and please be honost with me if the change possible or not for ear just tell me the truth,please.

The ear cartilage--the tissue that makes up the ear flap--is very changeable at this young age. By maturing I mean the cartilage grows some and becomes a little firmer and harder as the child gets older. Until this happens the shape of the ear flap can change.
