Not sure about the cute little starfish one - I have not seen that one before - but I can see scales along the midrib and possibly a leaf miner tunnel lower left. The colour of that leaf is very yellow. Should be a better green than that, even at this time of year. I'd say it needs plenty of feeding as well as possible treatment for the insect pests.
