Obama, who for a long time has lamented the loss of anonymity that comes with the presidency,said he has thought about leaving the White House in disguise. But his good sense prevailed and he realized it wouldn’t be a good idea. The secret service agents who protect him readily agreed.
“This friend of mine who’s a producer on Broadway, she sent me this fake mustache and I thought this is probably a bad idea,” Obama said. “I’d have to pin my ears back.”
Can you paraphrase the underlined part for me?

He's commenting on his prominent ears. He'd have to fasten the protruding parts to his head with pins (ouch!) to successfully disguise himself.
