I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Regretfully, I can't see what you're referring to when you post "My cat has the same problem."
"Puss coming out behind his ears" usually refers to bite wound abscesses that need to attended to by his vet - opened, flushed, debrided (devitalized tissue removed), left open to drain or a drain is installed in the wound, and a sytemic antibiotic is prescribed. Can you upload a photo(s) of these areas to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. Please check that the photo(s) is in focus prior to uploading it.
