This can be caused if the acer has been planted in an exposed area where the wind can scorch the leaves. the reason for this is that leaves of your japanese maple [if you have a good look] are very fine and more suseptible to wind and weather damage so it woild be a good idea to maybe plant it in a more sheltered part of the garden or if it's in a pot, move it somewhere where it has some protection.

hope this is helpful gerry.
