My month old baby got up from his nap and has crusty earwax on the outside of his ear and it looks to be a moist whitish (?) buildup inside. Should i be concerned?

Hello, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Earwax is a normal secretion of external auditory canal, in fact a product of sebaceous glands. Its has a protective function. In your baby's case, you must consult an ENT specialist to remove the wax, properly. Also, there may be a fungal infection in ear. So consult ENT specialist ASAP. Good Luck.
