Ice it: If you experienced no loss of consciousness, then don't worry. Just ice for 24 hours and time will heal.

Sometimes normal: During a swallow, the voice box is elevated by muscles in the neck in order to protect from aspiration and allow passage of the food or liquid bolus into the esophagus. Sometimes during these movements the ligaments or attachments or cartilages themselves can make clicking or popping sounds. Without symptoms of pain, there is nothing to worry about.

Head trauma: It depends on the force of the trauma but those symptoms may be related to serious head trauma. Go to the er immediately and get evaluated.
