Pending Validation(HTTP) Edge certificates

It’s been more than 48 hours, the edge certificates are still showing pending validation, I have followed the disabling universal SSL and waited 10-20 mins and re-enabled things. but it didn’t solve the problem.

Quick details:
I am using siteground for hosting and DNS are managed there. the domain is not managed in siteground, it’s somewhere else and siteground is linked to the domain using nameservers.

for Cloudflare, I am using CNAME setup

www.example.com CNAME www.example.com.cdn.cloudflare.net
cloudflare-resolve-to.example.com CNAME example.com

these 2 DNS records I have added in siteground(I have changed example.com to my domain)

Now I edge certificate section, I have two entries www.example.com and example.com
and when I click for more details I see this information

Cloudflare will validate the certificate on your behalf only for zones that are proxying traffic.
Certificate validation request Certificate validation response

I have also read that if you’re using CNAME setup then you’ll have to manually validate the things but I don’t find any guide on how to manually validate these things.

Please let me know what can I do in this situation?
Thanks
