Hi & welcome!

Your plant may be thirsty, &/or not getting enough light.

Pot is to large. Repot it to a 3 or 4" pot.
While repoting. Check roots for rot. Also trim any leaves that are squishy soft. Anything squishy soft is rot, and should be cut back to healthy growth.
Don't water till soil is dry.
Place in a window that gets the most direct sun as possible.

Good day ! Chap 👍👍

The pot size looks okay to me. Are any of the leaves buried below soil level? Remove the top layer if that is the case... the leaves should start at ground level. Repotting during a time of crisis is generally a risky move. I don't see any serious life-threatening crisis here, more like a cranky plant which will recover, and a signal to maybe change how you are caring for the plant.

What is the exposure like by that window? The plant should "see" the sun for hours a day. How often and how much are you watering?

Oh no ive already changed the pot now to a much smaller one :| Yes the leaves have always been above soil level. It gets natural light throughout the day however actually direct sun only hits in the afternoon for a couple of hours.
Watering every week but i always check the soil first. Thanks for your help!
