My tomato plant

The shapes of tomato leaves vary depending upon variety. Some leaves are smooth and look like the leaves on potato plants and others are wrinkled and more 'tomatoey' looking. The weather can also have an affect on how leaves look. Unless the leaves are distorted, thick, or curl upward, I wouldn't be too concerned about their appearance. It's also common for the lower leaves on tomato plants to turn yellow and die. This is just the plants' way of shedding older leaves. As long as the new leaves are green and healthy, there's nothing to be concerned about. Good luck with your plants!
