In brief: May be a latch issue
If feeding is working for the two of you it may just be a noisy baby.
Clicking, is sometimes heard when a latch is not quite complete. A lactation consultant can observe your technique and offer suggestions for modifications if needed.

In brief: Really don't know...
Truthfully, they do lots of weird stuff.
Some flop around, some wave in the air. Mine used to make sounds like she needed to "be oiled". Clicking could be the tongue undergoing the natural up and down motion needed to nurse, or just air pockets forming under the tongue. It doesn't matter, it's a normal noise, and as long as feeding is going well, is ok.
