Don't worry: I'm sorry you've had a bad cough for 6 days. No need to worry about the ear popping back. As the congestion in your upper respiratory system resolves the pressure in your eustachian tube will come back to normal on its own. You don't need to do anything. Don't try to "pop it back". No need to focus on it. Turn your attention to other things and you will find it will resolve in time. Best wishes.
