Hi there.
I wonder if anyone could tell me what is wrong with my beautiful acer please? It’s approximately 3 years old, and has been in a pot for approximately 2 years. It’s never had any problems until now. Is it sun or wind scorch? Please help how I make him happy again! Thank you in advance!

welcome to GoY,
I think you are right with wind & sun damage.
As it is in a pot it will need plenty of water especially as it has been so dry and breezy. Move it into a more sheltered spot and preferably light shade. water well and the lightly damaged leaves may recover. The very shrivelled ones will fall off.
