    I wouldn't worry about it - doesn't look like a diease.  As that leaf is shaded by the ones above anyway, you may as well nip it off.  That way, if there is any disease, it will help to stop it spreading.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Hiya 12, indoors do you mean in the house/ conservatory ? I was wondering how they were going to get pollinated. If inside I think you will have to manually pollinate by gently brushing each flower with a bit of cotton wool or a small brush, from one flower to to the next.

    I assume they are in the house due to nice potimage

    If I'm incorrect someone else will will advise you.

    Tomatoes self pollinate - you can give them a hand by shaking the flower truss gently, but you don't need to do it with a brush image

    I'm with Bob. Nip off the leaf. If the problem manifests again elsewhere, let us know.

    Dove's right too. Brush your hand over the flowers or give them a gentle flick with your fingers.
