Looks like they are in middle of new leaves unfurling themselves from the pic.but make sure that its not getting to much hot extreme heat and sun tho cus they will also do this to protect themselves as well. I think these in hotter areas like my area for example do better in part shade especially since its a lighter plant varigation.. For a bit if reference only cus all us have dif growing zone types and plant needs https://homeguides.sfgate.com/grow-shell-gingers-26614.html

Thank you @cyndi I'm pretty sure it's the 'too much sun' answer you gave. I'm in Victoria where it's usually cold but have them sitting in full sun all day. I thought either too much water or too much sun. So I'll try less sun. Thank you 👍
