Headset mic won't work

I recently bought a new headset with microphone and cannot get the mic part to be recognized in pavucontrol. I tried the headset on a Windows 10 computer and it worked perfectly fine without any setup, so I know it's not the hardware. I am able to hear through the headphones when I switch the audio output, but under the "Input Devices" tab, I am only able to select my laptop's built-in mic. How can I get it to recognize the mic? Any help is greatly appreciated!

OS: Debian 9 (BunsenLabs Helium)

There is no output from "dmesg -w" after I plug in my headset.

dmesg now needs to be run as root:

sudo dmesg -w

Yup, I did that. Sorry, I should've clarified. I actually got an error when I ran it normally, so I figured it had to be run as root.
