In brief: Probably nothing
Probably nothing to be concerned about.
Some causes are nerve pain and inflammation of the pericardium or pleura where it rubs against the breast bone ( in small built individuals) or some other unknown cause. If it is infrequent and lasts a few seconds it is generally innocuous. Still i would talk to my doctor about it.
