thanks everyone ..
Just wait dude. I'm 21 and I'm waiting until I lose some weight until I pull the trigger on customs. Your ear canals will definitely grow and change through puberty, but other things like weight gain or weight loss will also change them.
This is unrelated, but I'm short sighted, and I've been told that I need to be at least 25 to get laser eye surgery because if I get it any sooner, my eyes will change and the benefits of the surgery will be negated. I've also heard the brain keeps developing until your late 20's. Your ears and nose, like your hair and fingernails, will continue to grow all the way through your life (although at a slower pace). It's why elderly people usually have bigger noses or ears.
So in general, it sounds like your body keeps growing until around 25, so I would at the very least wait until you're done with all the growth spurts that occur through puberty.
