It would be more likely to be condensation than a crack. Is it both headlights or just one?

Apparently some of the Falcon headlights do "breathe" a bit ... and condensation can occur.

resealing the headlight is a way of fixing it ... but if under warranty ... take it back to Ford for a replacement.
