Is it in just one place or on several frets?
in one place - high fret
Lots of places - several high frets or the action is to low - Low bridge maybe


1 Try pressing the strings harder.
2 try placing your fingers closer to the frets not in the middle.

If neither of these work

3 Try changing strings

What is happening is a fret down string from where you are fretting it just barely touching the string and creating what is know as fret buzz

It depends on where the buzz is, listen closely. It means that something is vibrating up against something, once you find that out you can take the necessary actions

If all else fails, take it to your local guitar repair guy.

They could set it up for you for a small price :)
