In brief: Could be TMJ
Tmj is your jaw joint.
Just like other joints in your body, this one can get arthritis. This is usually noted by soreness and sometimes popping in the joint. Things to help: soft diet, warm compresses, nsaids (unless you have a medial contraindication), no gum chewing, and don't open your mouth too wide when you yawn.

That could be because your widom teeth are growing or breaking out of your gums .
They normally erupt between 18/23 years old, and it usually cause pain in your temple or next to your ears or in general jaw pain. A simple visit to your dentist can answer that question.
