Thanks for the comments.
If anything my vmo looks a lot bigger than my vl

When squatting. The knee cap will pop for a few reps then it seems to be ok. No pain during this. Afterwards when sitting down resting the knee will ache.
Deeper than parallel seems to aggravate this more

Looks to me like your IT band is the problem. Strengthen your gluteus medius and stretch TFL and IT band.

As seen in the pic your knee is in valgus. Valgus WILL cause patellar mistracking.

Have tried taping your patella with k-tape? This will force your patella to track correctly while you figure what is mechanically wrong. Alot of times you will build up calcium on the back side of your patella. This is the cracking and popping you'll hear and it causes pain. Getting it back in the groove will go along way in correct that.

Its not a mechanical fix but it will keep the knee from getting inflamed and tore up.

No problem, but don't let your knees fall in. Keep them in line with heel and 2nd metatarsal.
