Perhaps: e if the ligament was torn during the fracture it might take awhile for it to go away or you may always have it. Usually when the swelling goes down and it heals the clicking will usually decrease. Sometimes if the fracture causes increase bone formation the ligament clicks over the bone area and again sometimes it will resolve or might always have a click See your provider for some advice

Inflammation: There may be residual inflammation around the joint causing clicking sounds/sensations. This would be expected to resolve with time.
