Crests on Morgan horses

Cheryl Oickle

Just wondering at what level of the head/neck should one be assessing  the thickness and hardness of the crest? Upright? Level? with wither.?I have not been able to find much actual information. 
Jewels crest is soft and slightly floppy at a neutral level and when she raises her head is harder. I know perhaps muscle tension with neck use might play a role.
 A bit paranoid I suppose as this was the first indicator of things going sideways last year.
