Popping and crackling sounds are pretty normal...I had one lecturer that sounded like a bowl of Rice Crispies going off, whenever he stretched his arms out to the side; some of the popping can be caused by areas that are not used to being stretched or have not been stretched, when people start stretching them on a regular basis, however, the popping can and usually does disappear entirely.

Calcium deposits, I believe, can also cause popping. Unless he's feeling discomfort, he's probably fine.
