Brief Answer:
Folliculitis ear

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The bump in the picture is due to a hair follicle infection probably caused by finger picking or some object used to scratch inside the ear.
Apply an antibiotic ointment with a ear bud and keep the ear dry.
It will be fine in few days.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards
