Sigh, after a few weeks of this they still arent up. The cartilige is pretty week. The worst part is getting the breathe right strips in the ear, he jerks his head and it just doesnt attach. I actually think it's worse than before. Really aggravating. Has anyone ever tried those ear forms specially made for this?
how old is he now? They will or they wont. I tried the strips and they really didnt work , Sadies flopped for a long time, she has thin Cartilage ( among other things) but they eventually stood on their own.
He will be 7 months in 10 days.
Some dogs take a year to come up fully... Yodas ears did all kinds of weird shit the first year... they sit perfect now and don't flop at all

If you're that worried about it, have you considered having a vet tape the dog's ears like they do when they get cropped?

You know with the splints and wrap em up like a mummy, if it can work post surgery for naturally flopped over ears it stands to reason it most likely work for eliminating this crease in one ear.

But I'm no expert, I did stay at a Holiday Inn recently though

Ill try to be patient, the crease is just really bad. The ear used to stay down 90% of the time, now it doesn't go up at all.
