Some of my seedlings started getting crooked leaves. Should i be worried?

Two other got limp and drying bottom leaves that fell off easily, and one some weird enlargements of the main leaf vein.

check for aphids. I have seen leaves curl in response to even a couple little buggers. the top one doesn't look like aphids to me but check just to be certain. otherwise I say probably not an issue.

I think that it's too much fertilizer or too dry. Either water them more or re-pot into fresh mix. From the color that I am seeing on my screen, they are so very green that I would bet that it's the fertilizer.

The green is more vivid in the picture than in the reality. I water them every other day, and try to keep the substrate moist but not damp. I'm afraid of over-watering. I gave them fertilizer twice so far, not much, I'll lay off of it. Thanks.

I don't see any huge problem. Are they getting good light to prevent legginess?
You'll be surprised what you never have to do if you put it off long enough
