In brief: Open patellar sleeve

It sounds like you have some subtle dysfunction of your kneecap, aka patellofemoral joint.
Start with a simple neoprene sleeve with an open patella. If you have tried that in the past, a j brace is similar but more robust. It uses a pad to improve the control of the patellar tracking. I hope that helps.
