I'm no expert but I don't recommend just pulling it off. try to maybe get a cue tip dipped in water and try to moisten it and just let it fall off naturally. If it's not bothering him it should not be too high a concern to risk just pulling it off. If it is bothering him and stays on for awhile like maybe 5 days after you moisten it every day with the water. Then you might try to remove it gently with tweesers again only if it is moist with water. Never try to remove old shed skin if it is dry as you might rip the skin underneath.

:My new crested who is prolly a hatchling has a piece of what looks like old shed skin on his tail. It's on the very tip, where it's usually sticky and helps in climbing and stuff. It doesn't seem to bother him much, but should I risk it and pull it off? Or just hope it comes off by itself? It's really dry and crusty looking.
