Check the underside of your leaves for webbing. It is possible you have spider mites or a leaf curler. If you find webbing (or other signs of bugs), spray the leaves (top and bottom) with Neem oil. Or, spray the undersides of the leaves with a forceful stream of water from your garden hose. This will rinse off any insect pests.
