What causes deep crease in the ear lobe?

Hi, this may be nothing but I noticed something about my husbands earlobe that I have never seen before. He all of a sudden has such a deep crease that you would think his ear was pierced and the hole was torn down. It is a deep diagonal crease. I am pretty sure I read something about this before. Am I wrong?
