hello,do not try to unpop.if you do this air which is normally present in the middle ear will be sucked out through the tube which is present between your nose and middle ear.this will lead to a fall in the air pressure in the middle ear giving rise to pain and deafness.a tube called the auditory tube connects the back of the nose and the middle ear.this tube is always closed,it opens only when we yawn or swallow to allow air to enter the middle ear which you heard as a pop.this is normal so dont worry.
