noisy valvetrain usually. Make sure oil is topped up. Usually goes away when engine warm? Not sure how you solve it. I had that on occasion and I gather it is fairly typical and normal.
Again, it's not normal. Maybe you guys have a different ticking. If this was normal then it would not be something to start little, and casually get louder to where I can hear it 50-70 feet away.
