Thanks. So solution is hold off on water for while?  My other trees has the same amount of water, but looking good.

I have a small one that behaved like this and i think il loose her.
Took it out of the pot,dried the roots,made cracks in the potting mix so that the roots get aerated and nothing happened,its still the same.
One last think i will try is to add calcium( gypsum) because calcium defficiency causes curled leaves.

Those leaves are old growth so the tree had excess water.
If the new leaves starting to curl stop watering.
