Is he stalled 24/7 or does he have turnout? I am a strong believer that young horses really need to be out in a herd environment to learn to be a horse, and to strengthen their bodies as they grow by being able to move around naturally. You won't find many paddock kept youngsters that crib, usually cribbing only begins if the horse becomes stressed, or has a pain issue.
If you have no other option but to keep him locked up, provide constant hay for him to work on through the day, and perhaps a toy like a Jolly ball, or Likit to hang from the roof to keep him occupied.
