In brief: Don't worry

can't say for sure, but doesn't sound serious.
babies are very resilient. It doesn't sound like you were doing anything that would really hurt the infant; first I would expect him to cry if he was, also if kids were injured every time parents did the same, not sure the human race would have survived! Possibly just a crack from a joint (like when u crack a knuckle) - completely harmless.
