2014 VVT Noise?

Truck is a 2014 ram with the VVT. When I start the truck there is a ticking noise, but only for a short period of time; then it goes away. Could this be something with the VVT and the motor not being warmed up? New to ram so I am still learning about the truck. Thanks

Lifters probably needing a few seconds to pump up after the truck has sat for a while.

Lifters filling up or possibly and exhaust leak also.

Need to hear it, but exhaust leak would be my first guess.

snapped exhaust manifold bolt(s) would be the 1st place I'd look

Update: just got the truck back from the dealership, and it had broken manifold bolts on the passenger side. How common is this? I have seen a few posts on this forum regarding this issue? Is it something to be concerned about happening again? Thanks

It is pretty common thing to happen especially with the factory manifolds.
