ticking/knocking sound

Hey guys I have a 97' 7.3 and there's a ticking/knocking sound in my engine once it gets warm. I don't notice any smoke when driving unless it's once I get going in the morning (it's been in the 20s around here lately). I do have trouble with cold starts but most of the time I leave my truck plugged in overnight and it starts up like a charm. Any ideas? thanks

Rod bearing maybe, once the oil gets warm and thins out the clearance tolerance gets alittle less which would allow for s slight knock. Just a theory
