In brief: Normal

Flossing crowns would be the same as your regular teeth unless it is a bridge or splinted situation, then you would floss thread.
You should wrap the floss around the contour of your teeth and crowns and go beneath the gum, adapting it to the front and back of them and adjacent (proximal) areas.

In brief: Flossing/crown

You should not be doing anything different .
A well done crown should feel like your own tooth . Floss should not be catching and should snap in between teeth.

In brief: Flossing

If your crown has the correct contours and fit, you should be able to floss correctly around it as well as your own natural tooth.
If you can't, go back to your dentist for an evaluation and help. If the dentist who made the crown can't resolve the problem, see another dentist for a second opinion.
