Go to Edit - Preferences - Commenting, and tick off "Automatically open

comment pop-ups for comments other than notes".

Do you mean that the highlighted text is being copied into the comment, or just that there's a comment pop-up balloon?

I have just upgraded to the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and am having this issue now. It was fine before the upgrade though.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Make sure the option to copy the selected text into the highlight is not ticked, either.
