In brief: Not a problem

You didn't ask a specific question but i assume you're concerned about the aches and subsequent popping of the joints.
Achy joints during periods of growth are not unusual and generally benign. Popping the joints is not recommended but that's one habit you may not be able to break. If mild interventions help with the joint aches (ice or heat, anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen), there is likely.
