Hi,
I have a MacBook Air 2018 and when I type and rest my hand on it, I sometimes hear a popping noise. It doesn't happen most of the time and it doesn't bother me but I don't know if it is not normal or if there is a problem inside the laptop. What do you think I should do ? and do you have the same thing ?

Try reassembling bottom case.
It worked on my MBA 2018.

I don’t think I have it, instead I have a rattling sound coming from the display when tilted or shaken as on this video:

If it's a 2018, it's probably still in warranty. Take it to an Apple store and get it looked at. Better to have a pro look at it than roll-the-dice Techman off this site.
