Default Hood Pops up

Hey guys,

when i am driving around and hit bumps and potholes in the ground, or sometimes out of nowhere my hood decides to pop up and it starts to worry me. It doesnt fully come open to where the latch is off and it flies open but it pops up and stays down until you unlatch the hood. Ive looked at it a few times and im not sure if i need a new latch or whatever but any suggestions?

Check the cable inside the car that is hooked to the levar. I know the hood doesnt open but I wouldnt trust it on the highway/interstate.

Like I said, I would check the cable inside the car and try following it and see what the deal is. Let me know what you figure out.
