If color has gotten lighter. It needs more sun.
Otherwise, it looks fine to me.

🤔? Curling leaves ???
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Looks like an Echeveria, maybe a hybrid of subrigida. It is a succulent, right? The red edges on the leaves are a sign of strong light, and when they disappear that's a sign the plant needs more light. Normally subrigida leaves have a big fold down the middle, which is why I am not sure it is the species. I'm not sure how the shape of the leaf has changed but it may have to do with insufficient light.

This is not a good indoor plant unless it can live right next to a sunny unobstructed window, basically the sunniest possible place you can find indoors. It should be able to "see" the sun for hours a day, ideally. Also, put it in a bigger pot come spring because it's not a small plant, and that will give you the ability to water the soil instead of the plant, so water does not end up piled on top of the leaves every time. You need to avoid that because water trapped on the leaves will almost inevitably end up rotting the base of the leaves near the stem, spreading into the stem itself.

If any of this is not clear, please speak up and I'll try to explain myself better. Smiling
