Leaf curl is pretty common. If it's curling down, no problem in most cases. It's a stress reaction, and will be self-limiting when the weather changes. Some varieties are more prone to it than others.

There are some diseases that cause leaf curl, and volatilized 2,4-D (from a mile away) can cause shoestringing, but most of the time it's nothing to be alarmed about.

O.K. you tomato plant experts.  What causes a tomato plant's leaves to
kind of curl inward?  My plant is looking a little bit shriveled in
like that.  I thought it was because it needed water.  It has rained.
Still like that....
