Something is stuck in my Earbud Jack

Something is stuck in my earbud jack. I've looked at it from my lighted magnifier but I can't see anything wrong. This happened this afternoon. I noticed it when I plugged my buds into it. I also tried my reserve bud also. No joy. Are they any ideas on how to get it out? I have an Android Galaxy J7 Crown from Samsung. I know this because my earbud jack doesn't work at all. It may be just a case of lint or dust. How can I fix this?

I have found the tip end of an earphone plug lodged in the bottom of an earphone socket before. Ended up having to tear into the socket in order to get the broken off tip out.
