Lime tree leaves curling

Lime tree leaves curling

I've noticed the leaves on my lime tree are starting to curl. It's in a spot that gets afternoon sun and its been hot in the past week so that could be it, but its next to a lemon tree which is fine. Anyone got any suggestions for a remedy?

Can I please ask whether the tree is in the ground or in a pot? And have you noticed any pests on it?

The leaves look pretty green and healthy so it probably just needs more regular watering. It doesn't look like citrus leaf miner - a moth that lays eggs in the leaves. The leaves would be more deformed.

It's in a pot and I dont think anything is eating it. Will see how dry the soil is, perhaps I haven't been watering often enough.
