how about test AnsiQuotedStr ?
QueryString := 'INSERT INTO Users (FullName,Username,Password) VALUES ('
    + AnsiQuotedStrr( edtFullName.Text)+','
    + AnsiQuotedStr(edtUsername.Text)+','
    + AnsiQuotedStr(edtPassword.Text )+')';

if still error
you can set a point before
CreateUserQuery.SQL.Text := QueryString;
and add a watch about CreateUserQuery.SQL.Text
and paste the value in watch in the comment
this will let us more easy to determine the questioon

In some database systems USERNAME, PASSWORD might be reserved words. If they are used as fields in tables some RDBMSs have special quote chars to allow using them.

Microsoft SQL Server for example allow for there use if you squarebrace them.

QueryString :=  'INSERT INTO Users (FullName,[Username],[Password]) VALUES ('

I am not sure how other RDBMSs so this.
