This question already has an answer here:

I'm modelling this detail and when I add the subsurface mod, it does odd things. I cant make any loop cuts on it for some reason so have to use the knife tool. Would I have to add alot of cuts to be able to get a clean looking mesh... any help on where to make cuts without creating ngons?

    $\begingroup$ You already created Ngons which is why no loopcuts can be added (works only on 4 sided faces) and also why Subsurf creates artifacts - it doesn't go well with Ngons $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Mar 16 '18 at 21:41
