Thanks.

Ah, you very likely have one of a number of tiny worms that are enjoying your tomatoes while they are still growing! I always plant more than I will need so as to account for some limited attrition that results from these pests, but if you definitely want to get rid of them, this article contains links in the section labeled "Tomato Pests" that will take you to additional information about each kind of pest or worm and how to get rid of them:
