Hi Welcome to HCM,
I believe there is presence of wax inside. Fungal infection is a remote possibility as there is no itching or other symptoms.
Thanks a lot

Brief Answer:
May be wax or a foreign body.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.
I still feel presence of wax inside ear.
If you are sure enough about it's absence, then next possibility is a foreign body.
In either case, do visit an ENT consultant, who will guide you. A direct clinical examination is necessary.

All the best for now.
