Crusty skin

My 4 week old has what seems to be dry yellow crusts between his eyebrows. This morning i noticed a stain on the neckline of his shirt and found out that he also developed yellow crusts behind his right ear. What could be the cause and how can i treat it? He doesn't seem to be bothered about it tho.

My son had this very same thing behind his ears. I thought maybe he had spit up a bit while he slept and it travelled down his cheek and to his ear/neck. I took a q-tip and put Vaseline behind both ears. The next day they were clean. I've checked every day since and it hasn't come back. I think babies sometimes just get weird goo on em from spit, spit up, formula or breastmilk.
