Default Pittbull ears

I just got a puppy mutt. He is a border collie lab mix. Thats wat the foster parent said but i am seeing pitbull in him. When we got him at about 2 months his ears were floppy and went down. Now they are starting to curve back permanetly. I was looking at pictures of pitbulls and their ears look the same way that his do. Except only one ear is doing it. I'm thinking that they're probalbly going to stay curved back when he's older but i just want to know why they do that. because He is sooo much cuter with floppy ears.

i think pit bull ears are not naturally that way. i think that they are cropped to look like that.
so your dog having ears like that doesnt mean anything.

unless i am wrong of course

By curved back, I'm assuming you mean the rose ear? I see many many dogs with ears like that, it doesn't necessarily mean he has pit in him. But, we'll be able to tell a lot more from a picture.
