Crabapples usually bloom in May. Wait until after it blooms to style it. A picture would help. In general, you want to keep one to three trunks. Longest branches at the bottom. Go out in the country & look at apple trees until you are imprinted.

Take a look at the various posts of my pear. Apples look much the same. Here is one that can show the skeleton.
