How long does it take for a German Shepherd's ears to stand up. Mine is 10 weeks old

Normally they will be up at the end of teething, usually around 6 - 7 months of age.
It is extremely uncommon for a 10 week old to have erect ears. If the puppy is very small they may stand earlier but most are soft and floppy until around 6 months of age, and even those whose ears did stand early tend to flop during the eruption of the adult teeth.
However, genes play a part as well, and if the parents ears did not stand naturally, the puppy has a greater chance of having a floppy ear or ears as an adult.
Koby's ears were facing all different directions all the time until he was about 7 or 8 months old. We didn't think they would ever stand up. LOLOL
