Anchiornis crest by Lucas-Attwell Anchiornis crest by Lucas-Attwell
Assuming that red fethers are evidence for the crest. In nature there are a lot of birds with red head without crest, and crested bird without red feathers.

If it had a crest, this is how I think it looked. Note that this represents behavior of the animal, both raised and normal, lowered feathers.

Could it be like a tufted titmouse crest?

I think people overlooked Anchiornis' "crest" because they wanted just one crested raptor. Microraptor was "stolen" from them, so this guy kept his'do.
