I am going home for holidays, and my mum asked me to buy her a nonsticky rolling pin, they dont sell them in spain. I have already bought it, but I didnt plan to take any suitcases. Just a bag with a few things. Would I have any problem with it? Thanks in advance.

I watch a program about Australia's border control. If you fly in there you would have to admit to carrying wood if the the rolling pin is made from wood. They might think it is a weapon in some countries which would be annoying. You should look on the countries customs wed pages for information. If I wanted to give my mom a rolling pin I would sent it to her by post and not take it across a border. It would not be good in hand luggage or hold luggage. Searching baggage often happens at borders. Good luck.

I have no idea about it. But if you have a suitcase, you might get it inside with no problem. Perhaps you might check the airline website and see what things they prohibit from bringing. Else, call them and ask if you would not encounter any problem bringing it.

I really don't know - maybe you need to call the airline so you know if you need to ship it instead...

You might. A rolling pin would raise red flags especially if it is not packed in a suitcase. I would call your airline first. I also would not carry it on in a bag. I would pack it in a suitcase.
