Your best bet is to probably take it to an Apple store, and have them look at it. It's hard to give you a direct answer without seeing it or holding it. But the folks at the Apple store can probably help you out.

Get a lint-free alcohol prep pad and use it to clean the ball. Usually a little dirt/debris is the cause of this problem, and clean it off will fix it.
