Furn type curling to top growth on tomato plants

Hi all you knowledgeable growers! I wonder if anyone has any ideas about what's going on with my tomatoes?

I have noticed on two of my tomato plants (one grafted & purchased from a garden centre, the other grown from seed in my greenhouse.) That the very top growth of the plants, aren't developing correctly.  They seem to have their leaves (looking dark green and healthy) curled up similar to new furn/bracken fronds. I've also noticed that the upper part of the stem is thicker.

The leaves dont seem to want to open or rather unfurl. Has anyone ANY idea as to what might be the problem? I've had a look (on line) at TOMATO VIRUS,  it doesn't look to be that. 

I'd be very grateful indeed for any suggestions. 

BTW, all of my tomato plants are growing in crop bags.

Many thanks!

    It's quite normal for tops to curl - usually when there's a bit of rapid growth and the amount of water available means it just can't keep pace with it, and get it to the extremities of the foliage quickly enough. It usually sorts itself out.
    A photo would help though.  :)

    I've also found that the Beefsteak varieties often seem more prone to this than the small cherry types.
