Hi Lauren
I'm sorry to say that your cat may have fallen and hit his jaw on the floor or he may have a tooth problem which may have caused a ulcer etc.

Either way Lauren you need to speak with your parents and tell them about your worries and I would suggest hat your cat will need to see a vet as soon as possible.

If your cats jaw is clicking he may be in some discomfort so the sooner a vet can find out what is wrong the better.

Don't worry, speak to your parents about your worries. There is nothing you can do for your cat yourself apart from speak to your parents and try to get him to see a vet.

I hope he is ok again soon

best wishes kate
