2 doctors agree

In brief: Osteoarthritis

Sound is called crepitus and is because of wear and tear causing osteoarthritis.
Tylenol (acetaminophen) should be able to help with the pain if severe

In brief: Kneecap or inside

This could be the patella called chondromalacia patella where the patella rubs along the knee bone or could be internal structures of the knee such as ligaments and bone
