What can cause a ureter near the kidney to kink?

In brief: See below

Ureteral obstruction near the kidney can result from multiple things.
Some are congenital, including upj obstruction, where an accessory artery to the kidney crosses the ureter and kinks it. Other obstructions can be caused by scarring (from stones, surgery, or infection) or from extrinsic compression from things like abdominal rumors. You should see a urologist.
