Rubber bands work great for this!! Cross cross them (few one way then a few other way) that will hold them perfect

02|06|2018 - my opalina doesn’t look so hot. I fended off a sad mealybug attack so is that why my leaves are all dented and weird? #help #succulents #opalina #graptoveria

It's definitely a possibility that the mealies are to blame. I'd remove the damaged leaves and check the compost to make sure they aren't hiding in the roots.

@Soph1e thankfully the roots seemed clear! I also added in more soil mix so it’d sit up higher instead of within the pot. Hopefully that, and moving it closer to the light, will help it eventually (can’t tell here but it’s beginning to stretch). Will stay vigilant on mealybug watch though!
