how old are you?

are you male or female?

ear popping often means there is fluid behind your ear drums.

you should see a doctor who can look into your ears to check for fluid behind your ear drums.

you didn't answer any of my questions

sometimes if you swallow or yawn, you can open and close your eustachian tube which is the tube which leads from your inner ear to your sinuses.

that can sound like popping in your ears and is normal.
