I've been growing this supposed lime tree for about two years now. The first year and a half I had it indoors; I repoted it in November 2019 and moved it outdoors. The first few months outside were great, i had a few leaf miners but I got rid of that. Lately I've notices that some new leaves are curling ad the grow and one is even cut from one side. I live in Mexico, border with Texas; the plant gets direct sunlight for most of the day but not all since when I moved it outside and out it in direct sunlight it burned the leaves. Its been windy and its been raining more than usual, dont know it that could have anything to do with this.
Any recommendations as to what could cause this and how to fix the problem? Also, if anyone could identify the specific citrus tree I have, I would really appreciate it.

|Its Leaf Curl and that is caused from too much water and too much sun together. The leaves curl to keep the sun from burning its self. Move it to another area with a little less sun and allow the top two inches to dry well before watering again.

|Actually it looks like aphid or possibly psyllid damage. They're transitory pests mostly and their damage shows up after they're gone—usually.
Where you are full sun should be just fine and regular watering when it doesn't rain is enough.
From the winged petioles it looks like Kaffir Lime. The leaves are used in Thai cooking but the fruit isn't particularly tasty.
