Why are the leaves on my money tree beginning to curl?

I’ve had this tree just over a month now. It was originally by a radiator but I moved it about a week after we started putting the heating on. I water it about once a week, being careful not to oversaturate it. I don’t know if it’s being unwatered or unhappy about it’s positing, it’s now placed somewhere where it gets light but no direct sunlight. But it’s leaves are still curling (especially on the side facing away from the light source) and some of it’s leaves have cuts in them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

It appears to be wilting, from inadequate water. But rule out insect pest activity by inspecting the underside of the leaves. Some sucking insect pests like aphids will cause leaf curl like in the first photo.
Get a soil moisture meter to take the guess work out of watering. [1]
