So, my Nintendo Switch Pro Controller has this white stuff around the joysticks under the cap. What is this? Is it normal?

Is it smegma? Cos that's pretty normal.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

It's the rubbing of the plastic against the controller that causes this. I seen this happen on my controller. It's the stick rubbing against the circular port.

When reading reviews of the pro controller, lots of reviewers referred to it as cocaine. I definitely lol’ed. It’s plastic though so don’t snort it.

As expensive as the pro controller is you would think they would sort that out and fix it. Same with the d-pad issues. 😕

I’m pretty sure it’s just dust, often happens with my Pro Controller, you can remove it with your nails.

Same happens to the sticks of my joysticks. Seems normal. I figured it was just cuz they used lower quality materials than usual.

Same thing happens to all my controllers since N64, even my Xbox One Elite controller. Use a qtip with rubbing alcohol (95% or higher so it evaps quick).

It's dust. I'm sick of dealing with it. I should get some Q-Tips.

I usually just run a micro fibre cloth around it, comes right off. Its happened with pretty much every controller ive ever owned.

Your Pro Controller is just greying with age. Dipping it in a can of black acrylic paint will have it looking 10 years younger.

It is from the stick grinding on the circular ring. Nintendo decided to have the stick bottom out in the shell, and of course the shell comes to an edge.

@JackEatsSparrows N64 is different. It was caused by the bottom of the stick grinding in the bowl. I always live the bowls now with white lithium grease to prevent this.

As people are saying, yea it's pretty normal it's happened to a couple of controllers i'v had over the 20+ years analog has been around. This is why i get a new one once a year, and love the replacable joy cons. One of the best features a handheld can have IMO.
