This looks like peach leaf curl. It is too late to treat now for it. Liquid lime sulfur (if you can find it) or copper fungicide or Bordeaux mixture can be used before buds begin to swell. Thorough coverage of all bark and bud surfaces is important. https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/BP/BP-54.pdf vw
