Joint popping: Joint cracking and popping is not anything abnormal provided no pain, swelling, redness or loss or lack of function is present. I would worry about popping/cracking only.

No need to worry: This cracking sound ca be many things like tendons snapping, arthritic bone changes, air pockets and many more. If no pain mention it to pcp next visit.
