In brief: Injured finger

A pop is not necessary to have an injured finger. If it is swollen and painful then an x-ray is needed.

In brief: It May Be

Even if the finger is not broken, it should be evaluated by a primary care doctor or hand surgeon, since a serious ligament tear could give the same symptoms.
It needs to be x-rayed and evaluated clinically.
