Depending on engine it may have bent a valve if timing wasn't set correctly. It may be a lifter as well

A bent valve is serious but if it'snot misfiring then it's probably ok. The other may be the lifter so it will have to have a pro check it out. Because I can't hear it it's best to have checked locally
