It is normal to be able to crack your jaw?

In brief: Controversial

Some will say any cracking is abnormal.
I believe without discomfort it is being able to slide the upper part of your jaw over a bony structure at the base of the skull. This can happen in most upon opening really wide. Point is no pain. If there is pain, not good.
