I believe I own a Cotyledon "Macrantha". It's been growing fine the last few months but I noticed lately that the new leaves are indeed growing, but they are wrinkled. Why could this be?

Wrinkles? I guess I am not looking at the right thing? Could the new leaves just not be fully open?

Could the wavy leaves be what the plant is supposed to look like and your ID is wrong?

Perhaps. I've thought about that and tried to see if I could find pictures of the types of Cotyledons for comparison. Its weird though because the bigger leaves aren't wavy or wrinkled like the young ones. They're flat and paddle like with red tips.
