I am not sure which part of the ear you are talking about specifically but the flap on the side of your head by the opening of the ear canal is called a Tragus. Then you have a lobe where the common ear piercing is done. The curve at the top is called a helix. I am not sure what you are looking for here so I gave you as much information on the outer ear that I can.
