A late cold snap can damage some leaf buds so perhaps that's what happened to your tree. Or, as the branches grow (elongate) the leaves will be spaced farther away from one another. As long as the growth looks healthy, I don't think there is anything wrong with your tree. Keep watching it, though, just in case. Best wishes with your tree!
