I wouldn't worry too much about them. The popping in a joint is technically known as "cavitation," and it is the result of a sudden decrease of pressure within the joint capsule as the ligaments stretch.

The only caveat would be that sometimes a joint that is frequently popping becomes hypermobile because it is trying to compensate for another joint that is not moving.

If you are concerned, it would be worth a visit to a chiropractic physician to see what's what.
