possibly a cam phaser or a timing gear.

Check your drive belt tensioner. My car did it yesterday after finishing a complete engine rebuild, I almost cried. Watch the tensioner does the noise happen when it moves? Remove the drive belt and see if the noise goes away.

Apparently (read about it on a workshop website so could just be money raising)
Anyway, apparently one of the guides for the timing chain is prone to failure.

this could be creating the sound but for your sake I hope not
