What causes crackling noise in ear?

Hi there!! :)

When I puff my cheeks, I can hear crackling noises in my ear. I can also push on the area under my ear lobe and hear all the crackling moving around. Is this a simple matter or can this lead to infection if I leave it alone?
Thank you! :)

Hi cracking noise in the ear is normal if you puff your cheeks.
But if you are having cold, running nose, stuffed nose and then having cracking sound in the ear then it seems its mucus in the ear. Then you have to consult doctor,
