My 4 month old puppy got neutered and he’s ears changed after wearing an E collar. Will they go back to normal?

His ears used to flop and looked like Doritos, after wearing the E collar his ears look like Dobby from Harry Potter.

This has nothing to do with the neuter or e collar. It's your dog growing. I have a 3 month old terrier whose ears are in "helicopter mode" right now too. =) It's normal growth.

Dog breeds with erect ears, are born with floppy ears. They would start to stand right around the age your dog had the e-collar on. it sounds to me, like your dog just has erect ears now. If you google images of a German Shepherd puppy, you will see they all have floppy ears.

Well that's pretty funny about your dogs ears! There really isn't a good answer to your question, maybe they will, maybe they won't. Hope things work out the best for you.
