Crepitus: Sounds coming from a knee when it bends could be crepitus which are rubbing of the bones in arthritis. An xray and evaluation is needed.

Have it evaluated: Sound coming from the knee could be due to tendon, cartilage, meniscus, or bone abnormalities. Have it evaluated by your orthopedist and find out why it is making that sound.
