I started wrestling when i was about 4 years old and didnt not have any sign till i was 17 going into my senior year of high school. WEAR HEADGEAR. your teamates will hate you but tell them to wear theres and its no big deal. I had to have surgery so mine isnt as bad as most but you can get it from grappling or even boxing. You will need a head gear for almost all of competition so get used to it and it will help alot with cauliflower ear.
