Has yellow looking mass in ear blocking view to his ear drum. There is no drainage. What it could be?

Hi, My 4.5 year old son has some yellow looking mass in his right ear blocking view to his ear drum. I can see little puss like thing stick to his out ear as well, there is no drainage though. Left ear looks good and I can see his ear drum however this also has little ear wax which looks normal. (Some History: We went to beach and it was too windy, we came back after 2 hours and that day late evening, he started complaining about ear pain. We gave him Ibrufen which helped reducing his pain). However i am worried about his right ear. What it could be.

Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns.
There are several possibilities namely otitis externa (infection of the ear canal),swollen impacted wax or a foreign body.
Please do not try to remove that thing & do not poke ear bud.
Take him to an ENT doctor for proper management.
In the mean time can continue brufen for pain relief.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
