Default knocking noise - HELP

okay, so as i left the store the other day all of the sudden it starts to make this noise like its slapping....the lifter..we took off the valvecover and looked at it, and did a visual inspection, looked good, no metal chips or anything.....but it still has the problem, it sounds like the cam is not rolling onto the lifter, but slapping it instead?? but im not 100% sure on what it could be...anyone else have anything like this?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I've had this happen to me once before, but, it kinda jsut went away. lol, how loud is it? A little Ticking is normal. Check your Oil level. Throw some thicker oil if its motor related.
