Curling tomato leaves

hi, just wondering if the tomato leaves curling are anything to worry about. Until a few days ago they were on a windowsill so I’ve put the curling down to variable temperatures? I’ve repotted and they re now in a more stable temperature although perhaps less light ( still bright but not direct). The leaves are curled under like you would roll something up.. I have 3 varieties and one in particular is curling more (Golden Sunrise), the odd one in the Sakura variety and none of the Sungold are curling..

    That’s no problem, lovely heathy plants, some do that, some don’t.

    Strong fluctuations in daytime/night time temperatures bring it on, I believe.

    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Some do turn down in the heat, maybe a way to conserve energy, but I don’t think so at this stage, it’s the type they are, I think it may have been my jersey giants that curled down like that. (Some variety I had anyway😀) 
    Usually, if they’re cold they turn white on the leaves, so I don’t think it’s that in this case.

    They look good to me too. :)
    It might also be because they're quite close together - maybe need a little more airflow around them? 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
