typical dust forming, you could get a new one, or try rolling it down hard with the palm of your hand, works pretty well

good luck

Those scroll wheels get stuck a lot, I know I’ve seen this Q before.

Turn it upside-down & roll the scroll wheel on a slightly damp cloth in all directions until it comes clean.

Yay! It is working again! I love it when there is a simple fix.
