Brief Answer:
It isn't harmful

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
Cracking the knuckles isn't harmful and it doesn't separate the joint.
The sound is formed by bumping the gas bubbles formed in the joint space while stretching it.
It doesn't cause arthritis or other joint issues.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
