crusty scabs in my kittens ears
I have a kitten that was born Feb 14th. I noticed three weeks ago there were two rough spots in his ears. I thought it just might have been from play with his brother. Today I noticed that there are more of them. The are not red, not dark like ear mite dirt and his ears are clean. The little crusts are light in color. My cats are fully vetted. Just want to know if you might have an idea what could be wrong. None of my other cats have this problem. I don't see him scratching his ears at all.

hi well they do sound just like little scabs to me which as you say could be caused from over zealous bite play from his brother.
have you made sure they are flea clear as they may be flea bites which have caused itching and then scabbed after scratching.
keep the ears clean and keep an eye on the marks, hopefully they will heal and on their own. If they get worse or won't go away then have the vet take a look in case it is a skin problem.
best wishes kate
