Head Tilting

Hi, a few months ago I got my horse, and in the last couple weeks Iíve noticed on the cross-ties he tilts his head sideways. Itís usually after heís been on the cross-ties for a little while when Iím grooming and tacking up, and he stretches his neck out and tilts his head so itís laying sideways. He hasnít done it under saddle, but I was wondering if this is anything to worry about? Or probably just a weird habit?

Sounds like he's stretching his back.
