Your dog probably has the genes for whats known as 'long stock hair', ie a longer than the standard coat but not a very long coat. It should have some undercoat too (correct "double" coat). About 12% of GSDs have this genetic component. Lots of long-stock coated dogs a) have some bits of their bodies "fluffier" than other bits; lots also retain their fluffier 'puppy coat' for a bit longer than normal coated dogs. You might find that after a moult or two the fluffy hairs around the ears will
eventually brush out and disappear. There again, they may stay for good (and just be part of your individual dog's appeal !) Yours is still young.
I don't know if this would affect your chances if you were to show him as a White Shepherd; I'll leave that to someone who knows about current expectations with Whites to answer - or maybe you could post a separate question.
If the hair stays that way, be sure to keep it fully combed out while grooming, as this sort of hair can get into some terrible knots if neglected.
[Thank you, by the way, for at least giving your dog its correct Breed name !!!]
Best of luck with your boy.
