I do that sometimes after I eat. I also REALLY do it if I see a tasty looking bug, fly & anything like that in the apartment. That's probably all it is.

It could be a lot of things - we need context to decipher. If he is looking out the window when he is doing this it could be his prey drive kicking it - it's called the "killing bite". Or if it's happening randomly for no reason - maybe after eating or using the bathroom - he could be nauseated. It could also be something going on in his mouth - check his tongue for foreign material such as string or hair. Unless he is in distress I would just watch him and see when it happens. Good luck.
