What are the folds of skin on a cat's ears called? Will accept the scientific or colloquial name! Remember, no googling or cheating 😸

  The answer I believe is a marginal pouch.  I know there is a scientific name, but can't remember.

Ding ding ding! The fold is called a cutaneous marginal pouch. Colloquially, it is referred to as "Henry's pocket."
