what does it mean when my thumb clicks?
every time i bend it it clicks and i can feel it clicking

Its a second joint in the thumb I have it its cool haha.

Mr E
likely you have nerve interference affecting the median nerve. since there is an overlap of nerve roots to both at c8, most chronic or recurring upper extremity symptoms also indicate nerve interference to the heart, although this is not to say it is of a sufficient severity or duration to be of any serious concern yet. see an hio method upper cervical specific chiropractor.

Which part is clicking (which joint specifically) and does it hurt?

If it is the second joint in the thumb (not the one nearest the nail), it could be something called De Quervain's tenosynovitis. This is where the tendon in the thumb gets caught on the sheath that it should ordinarily slide into without your being aware of it. I have had this myself and it can be painful when it gets caught. I was told that the only options were surgery or steroid injections, but I wasn't prepared to have either, so they eventually strapped it up with a splint so I couldn't move it and after a long time - almost a year - it finally healed itself.

Another possibility is trigger finger - or in your case, trigger thumb: http://www.davidlnelson.md/Trigger_Finger.htm

If, however, there is no pain and your thumb has always clicked, it is unlikely to be cause for concern. Some people have looser joints than others and it's not anything to worry about.
