Marykay,

A tomato hornworm is a big problem!. They'll devour half a plant and it's tomatos in days.

Your tiny worms, even though damaging a few leaves is not a serious problem. The plant is growing too fast to be bothered by a small 'pillar'. If there aren't too many, you can simply snip off the affected leaf. Or if you like, you can spray with Bt or Dipel, both organic 'pillar' killlers.
