Default New leaf damage

This is a Raja about 5ft tall. I just got it about a month ago and all was well it was putting out a leaf a week or so. The last 2 leafs have had a brown streak in them when they were shoots and the leaf unfolds to having a damaged line in it. It is not sun damage I wouldn't think as they have been outside more than a month and the first leaves were fine. Any ideas??

I have lil fat helicopter looking bugs that do that, and have done that, but alot worse to one of mine. The new leaf looks like swiss cheese. You get close to them they will jump all over the place.. I keep them @ bay with sulfur dust or sevin dust liquid spray. :^) The Jap beetles eat in between the veins so that isn't you problem in this case. Could be a slug too.

Yeah, looks kinda like some sort of insect damage to me. Not entirely sure, though.
