Your photo suggests a Darwinian tubercle (an extra bump of cartilage along the outer rim of the ear), which is a normal variant. It's difficult to tell in the photo, but you also may have a poorly developed superior antihelical crus (the upper limb of the Y-shaped fold of cartilage inside the ear rim), which can contribute to a "sticking out" or prominent ear. If you are concerned about the appearance of your ear, schedule a consultation with a Facial Plastic Surgeon or General Plastic Surgeon who performs cosmetic ear surgery (otoplasty) to discuss your concerns. Good luck!
