Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Cracking sounds in the knee has nothing to do with Osgood schlatter's disease. Those sounds could be possibility due to Patello-femoral arthritic changes which are commonly seen in people involved in sporting activities.

The popping sound coming from your gluteal region could be due to a snapping Hip.

Consult an orthopedic surgeon for further management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
