Wel come to HCM,
It seems that you might be having slack muscles of knee joint and might be having some problem of ligament or cartilage.
Go for x-ray knee and find out the cause and consult orthopedic surgeon.
Go for Quadricep exercise 10 minutes in the morning and evening.
Avoid sitting on legs and squatting position.
Do not sit with cross legs.
Ok and bye.
