There any simple way to make my ears go back a bit, so they don't stick out so much?

In brief: Yes, for newborns

Adult ear cartilage is too firm to reshape and normally require surgery.
Cartilage bends, but snaps back to its original shape. Baby ear cartilage is very soft and can be molded before they "harden." in the uk, they use earbuddies (see pic), and in the us, there is a new one called earwells. New technology, cartilaze is designed to soften the cartilage so it can be molded. Not much info yet.

In brief: Otoplasty surgery

Otoplasty is a straight forward operation that is very effective in improving prominent ears.
It can be done in an adult under local anesthesia with few risks. See a facial plastic surgeon for more details.
