I've hatched out dozens of cresteds.
My animals are provided with ample food, calcium, supplements, climbing space and even UVB lighting. Hatchlings are housed separately.
I've had two animals develop FTS despite all this. These animals also have tons of things to climb on.
Also, they do not lose control of the tail. It gets weak at the base. So the tail is likely to flip over the animal's head, especially if it's facing downward.
