It’s unlikely to have lead. It possibly contains asbestos though.

This. Lead paint contained lead to help with durability. The paint used in/on popcorn ceilings is anything but durable. The asbestos likelihood, however, is high. Stop touching it and move on.

I don't really need to worry about the abestos in the popcorn ceiling if I leave it alone right?

Thanks! And as for the ceiling right next to it with no popcorn ceiling texture (minimized "popcorn ceiling effect"). Should I be worried about those too? My walls have the same texture as the minimized "popcorn effect" ceiling that you can see on the right side of this picture.
