Hey wondering what's wrong with my jade plant. Its on a south facing window, so gets lots of sunlight. Wondering if it's too much sun or too little water or a disease. Thanks in advance

It looks fine to me, maybe some mechanical damage? The damage sort of lines up with the edge of the pot.

Your jade plant looks like it needs more light. Is there an obstruction outside the window? Is the plant right next to it? Ideally it should "see" the sun for hours a day.

I totally agree, looks more like someone knocked it over, or perhaps a critter took a little nibble from a leaf.

In looking at the pot, it looks like a pot I used and had trouble with it retaining water as the saucer made the drainage hole function poorly, where the soil took dangerously long to dry out. I had a hoya in it, with shallow roots; The plant was only in it for a week, but the hoya roots were damaged anyway.
