Not much to go on. However, I would guess that you are clicking on a merged cell.

Select the cell in question and check out the "Merge & Centre" button in the "Home" bar. If it is highlighted, it indicates a merged cell.

The other alternative is that there is an overlayed object - in that case, when you click on it, it generally will show selection marks around it.
