Exclamation Small Growth on Ear

Hey guys! My girl Dobby has a small growth on her ear that I noticed after I groomed her. It looks almost like a pimple, and I was wondering if it could be a dangerous thing? Anyone know what it could be?

Attached are images of the lump.

It doesn't look like an ingrown hair. It could be a mole. I would just watch it to see if it grows or changes at all.

I took her to the vet for a check up regardless, turns out it was, in fact, a pimple! :P She has been treated for a mild case of mites and has been given meds for a slight ear infection due to these mites, so she's recovering happily in her little hut! Thank you for the feedback!
