I don't know if this is worth worrying about and it might just go away, but I've noticed over the past few days a faint noise from my left knee that sounded like plastic crinkling when I come up from the bottom of a squat. At first I thought it was my clothes, but after checking, it looks like the noise is coming from my knee.

Does anyone have any experience with something like this and know whether it is worth getting it checked out or any ideas what to do about it?

Worry about it. Address it before it becomes a problem.

Julie's right knee makes this same noise if her knee comes past her toes when squatting. As long as her knee stays behind or above her toes we're good.

You might take a look at that.

I'm not a physician, I'm not a trainer. I just happen to have recent experience with this specific issue. We are working to address it by correcting form. We don't believe there is a problem with her knee at this time so we aren't checking with a doctor.
