It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described does not suggest torsion. It would be prudent to see a doctor if you get more than mild pain. Wish you good health!

If the testicle is not higher up than the other and not painful then there is nothing to worry about. Wear a support underwear.
