Dog's ears can be different thicknesses, but still stay in the normal canine features. Some reasons your dog's ears may be thick include genetic mutations and the breed of the specific dog. Do not be concerned about this feature on your dog. It is not life threatening.

Just like with humans, all dogs are different from one another. Some dogs have small ears, some big. Some flop over and some stand up straight! "Normal" is whatever is usual for your dog! However, if you notice sudden changes in your dog's appearance, contact your vet!
