My son is like that.
DO NOT pick it out yourself.
Actually, you are not supposed to use Q-Tips in a child's ear etc., because it can push the wax in further, or worse, you can rupture his ear drum.
Our Pediatrician, said per my son, it really is no big deal. HE, with a Doctor's tool... took out my son's ear wax.
He said it causes no harm nor any hearing problems.
Nor has he ever had any ear infections, ever.
** My son, did not have any pain, while the Doctor took out his ear wax. He was not scared either.
The ear... is actually SELF cleaning.... and stuff gets pushed out of the canal and into the outer ear, by itself. That is what a normal healthy ear... does. It is self-cleaning....
You should only let your Pediatrician do that.
all the best,
