Get some cold pressed coconut oil and rub the ears with that -- you can find it at any large pharmacy or grocery store.

How old are your pigs? Can you post a picture of the ears?

OK. The reason I asked is that sometimes dried edges of the ears can indicate possible heart problems. But that's undoubtedly not the case in a pig so young. Try the coconut oil for a week or so. If it gets worse, or isn't better by that time, then see a vet.

Guinea pigs do not really have hair on their ears normally.
