    Whle it could be bacterial, but it doesn't seem to be wet or weaping like bacterial stuff can...I wonder if you watered and the sun hit the leaves and sunburned them????? I'm sure smarter people than me will help out here

    Looks like snail or slug damage to me. I would repot and make sure the pots are free of slugs.

    Welcome to the forum, James.

    Cheers,

    I can't tell if it is mechanical damage from a slug or snail or is it Mesophyll cellular collapse. What happened to the newest leaf? I see that it has been removed.
