Richard, don't know if you can change the color of the cross hair on the free select tool.
What I do know is you can change the cross hair into a pointer as in previous versions of Gimp.

Wallace made a tutorial about it.

Hi RJKD,

I had never thought about it before, and I didn't even test it to see if it would work, but here's a suggestion:
Locate the file crosshair.png, in my gimp it is in Gimp-2.10.11_Portable-32-64bit-Win_20190412 \ share \ gtk-doc \ html \ pygtk \ cursors but in your Gimp it may be on a slightly different path.

Edit this crosshair.png with the desired color and replace it in the folder.
Keep the original crosshair.pgn in another folder as a backup, or change its name to something like crosshair.pgn.bak
Restart Gimp and see if it worked.
Good luck!
