Pain in my kneecap area (feels like verticle line) when I do deep knee bends and squat lifts. But there is no pain if I do weighted leg raises, ideas?

In brief: Be careful
You may have a patellar strain/tendonitis or even a tear. This could lead to a patellar tendon tear, which would require surgery and an extensive rehabilitation.

You may also have some problems with your patella such as chondromalacia or subluxation.. If symptoms persist I would suggest an orthopedic exam and possibly diagnostics studies.
