Cylinder head holes

Hi quick question - the holes on either side of the cylinder head on my bike look quite grubby and partially closed with gunk - what is best way to clean them out - thanks

They're drain outlets for the spark plug recesses so use anything available really.

Leaking cam cover gasket perhaps.
The hose from the crankcase breather at the top has come off or a loose spark plug?
