Damaged seed leaves will they recover?

My Cosmos Seashells have damaged cotyledon leaves due to the gas heater in the greenhouse not working probably and lots of fumes. Will these recover or do I sow some more. The centres of some of them are growing.

    The seed leaves are there just to give the seedlings something to live on until they can get a root going.
    If you can see true leaves appearing they'll probably be ok.
    Give em a few days and see how they come on.
    I'll not sow cosmos for at least a month
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Thank you will give them more time. Just sent for more seeds so a late sowing may do better. Now replaced gas heater with electric.
