Odd Blackish white object in anal area

I am not a frequent member of this post however I have come across something a little weird while washing my cat.

Around/exiting his anal area are two black objects. I attempted to remove them with a dry tissue while washing him, thinking it was simpy dry feses. However they seem pretty attached. The cat didn't make a sound however he didn't favor me tampering around his rear end. Thinking it may be worms I checked his litter box. I didn't see anything odd in his "droppings" I don't want to give him worm medicine if he doesnt' have worms.

The objects themselves look black, but as I attempted to remove them I noticed white portions behind the black. They are horizontal one on the left and one on the right respectively.
Any suggestions

Good idea to have the vet take a look at it... doesn't sound like worms.. wouldn't pick at it or fuss with it not knowing what it is.

umm... Is your cat neutered?

No sir he is not

Are you sure those aren't his unneutered bits?;)
