The ear drum is often transparent and looks like a stretched piece of clear plastic. The drum is approximately the size of a dime, with the newborn ear drum the same size as the adult. The malleus is the middle ear bone which is attached to the drum and easily identified. The middle ear space can be seen through the ear drum and a portion of the incus (another middle ear bone) can be identified.
