Get help now: The popping is the cartilage slipping into and out of place. You have a time where this may be treated conservatively. Do it now. It won't correct itself. Talk to you dentist and get treatment or a referral to someone who will treat this conservatively. Avoid surgery if possible and don't put this off too long.
