This plants look like it was gotten from a seeds that come from of hybrid plants.
When you seeding a seed and it come from of a F1, the resultant plants are usally improductives, bit healthy and non resistant to pests (this is the bussines of the seed industry)
If this is the case, there is not a possible solution. It would be better that you seeding a seed gotten from an open pollination variety or a creole seeds.
I say this, because I see your plants very dwarf and with deformed leaves.
Another possible cause would be a disease provocated by a virus.

Is it possible something is chewing on this part of the plant? I can see it is in a pot- Are there other chili plants nearby?
