If they're kind of curled at the bottom, it could be fin rot. Once a crowntail's fins curl from that, they may or may not grow back out straight, but it's always worth a shot. You're going to want to make sure you're doing enough water changes with conditioned water of the correct temperature, keeping his water temp around 74-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and possibly using aquarium salt(not table salt) to treat him. I'm not sure on dosages, so hopefully someone will chime in on that. Pictures always help when diagnosing things like this. Even if you can't get perfectly clear photos, anything is better than none at all.
