Are you watering too much? They can get oedema when you water too much but I have not seen oedema on croton before so I am not sure this is oedema.

My first thought was leaf galls but I enlarged your photos and I agree, the blistering looks like oedema which is caused when the roots take up more water than the plant can use. I find Croton (Codiaeum variegatum) to be fairly drought tolerant. Reduced watering is needed.
