I banged my knee against a knob of a cabinet and on impact it hurt then it didn't hurt anymore. Now it clicks when i move it. Is it normal?

May need orthopedist: If the knee is swollen (compared to the other knee in the mirror) or tender when you press on it, you should see an orthopedist for an evaluation. If the clicking gradually goes away and the knee looks and acts normally, then all is well. If it persists, then you will still need that evaluation

Go to urgent care/ER: It sounds like possibly a ruptured baker's cyst, but will require evaluation by a medical professional before a solid diagnosis can be made.
