Default DC-DC SMPS Inductor got sound!

Sorry ,if there is similar topic somewhere in this forum, I've tried search but no match found!
This is the first DC/DC 12-19V SMPS I've build,but when I first boot up no smoke! *Lucky* , then I tried to load to 5A using dummy load.. sound comes out from the inductor i think so.. *heeeeeeeee.....* sound continuously.
Is it normal? How to make the sound disappear?

wire on toroid is vibrating, some kind of varnish over it. It could be too because of unstable feedback, rapid changing duty cycle would do that too

if the core is broken anywhere,vibration also occurs.As Luka said,some varnish is good for vibration.Feedback compensation.

Seeing the pic you posted, like the boys already said, and for the problems i have myself, it's the compensation, that noise is due to fast-changing duty cycle no doubt!!! the questions are: is it current or voltage mode? is the current sense resistor the right size? has the design single point ground for the control logic? if it is a flyback type converter, at 5A the peak currents must be big so, have you used any kind of switching transcient snubber?

As Luka mentoined - unstable, or wrong (to high) filtered feedback loop. Feedback cut out frequency should to be 5-8% of Fsw, & & should not exeed 10% of Fsw.
Elese check you traffo & inductor for saturation.
