Is it a keloid or hypertrophic scar? (photo)

I got an ear cartilage piercing a month ago and i just saw this now. It doesnt hurt and its dry i was wondering what is it and will it grow?

Keloid therapy of the ear

This may be a cystic reaction or an early keloid. Remove your piercing and wash thoroughly, followed by Plato's Scar Serum twice daily.
