Den. with curly leaves

Hi, all
I recently got this Den. and I was wondering if anyone could tell me why the leaves on some of the PBs are curled longwise to make a tunnel shape. These leaves are on the 2 PBs in the center of the group. The rest seem to be fine. The roots I can see are ok, but I haven't disturbed the plant to see the inside roots as I am waiting for it to get done blooming. Thanks for looking.
ps. It was like that when I bought it.

Can you open the leaf enough to wipe it and inspect for traces of mites or other bugs? Sucking insects can cause leaves to deform, I think.

I grow a lot of dens and it seems to be a trait for some reason. While I've never encountered pests I agree on checking to be sure.
