Not telling you what you should do, and of course separating baby Cal kings is best, but here is a tidbit of info:
One year I had a clutch of B&W x coastal phase cal kings hatch, and I left them together even after they shed, and I kept them over the Winter together for a cooling period because many would not feed.
Eventually in Spring I separated them. After a while, I put the females together again in one 10 gal tank, and I put the males in another. That is when I had a few cannibals try to eat a cagemate. Caught them in time.
So, while they are together, the risk, though there, is low. But once you separate them, forget it. Don't combine them. I feel that in the wild this may be how things are. Babies that hatch in the same spot are mostly just fine with one another while they stay together. Even after they separate, I think some siblings are still fine with one another. But an unrelated snake would be a more likely target.
