I'm afraid I don't know the answer to this, but I also have one on my right ear. It looks like a piercing hole and is in the exact spot you mentioned. I know I've had it since birth, as my mum said she spotted it the day I was born. It's been a mystery to me for 31 years, so would love to know the answer!
Here is a great site that gives a simplified explaination: http://www.doctorhoffman.com/xpit.htm
I have one on my left ear. I don't know if this is a common problem for anyone else here, but I have to "clean" mine out every few days. It is not infected, is the tissue surrounding it is not sore, discolored, etc... however stuff will come out, that is similar to the solid white puss of a pimple, followed by an oily clear liquid that if bothered (rubbed) has an unpleasant odor. I believe I have this problem because I am very active and sweat, dirt, etc... get in the hole and react as it would entering a normal pore in the skin, only in a hole much bigger than a pore.
What's all the business with angels about then.
These holes are Preauricular sinuses. Normally, they don't cause any problems, but if infected they must be drained, closed off, and/or removed.
Sorry to give such a medically based, non-creative answer, but I thought some people might like to know.
