Most likely: Articulation of upper cervical vertebrae. As we walk, our cervical spine normally rotates on itself to compensate for the motion of legs/pelvis. You may have mild osteoarthritis or mal-alignment of the cervical spine that is causing some clicking while walking. Try strengthening and strengthening exercises of cervical spine and possibly manipulation could help as well.
