It is most likely a watering issue. How often are you watering? Newly planted trees should be watered daily for the first two weeks and once a week after that until established. If you were not watering daily for the first two weeks, start that now. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/watering-newly-planted-tree.htm

I agree that it could be a water issue. I would also have a soil test done at
county extension office. Sometimes copper defiency can cause leaves to curl.
