Synonyms of "Tuck" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between tuck away and put away ?
A: They mean almost the same thing, but when someone says ‘tuck away’ it implies that it’s more private, personal, or a secret. The other difference is ‘tuck away’ is not as commonly used as the phrase ‘put away’.
Q: What is the difference between tuck and fold ?
A: to me it's a matter of preference but there's a subtle difference:

• to fold:- to bend or tuck something so that part of it will cover itself, like when you fold a shirt... part of the shirt overlaps because it's bent

• to tuck:- to fold or bend something (usually fabric) to keep it in place
"Let me tuck you in tightly."
Q: What is the difference between tuck and roll ?
A: Both words have a lot of definitions, so I'll try to explain the most common uses.
To tuck something into something else means to push something (or the edges of something) into the other thing in order to make it fit. Most common examples are to tuck your shirt into your pants or to tuck your bedsheets under the mattress. You can also tuck a child into bed when you pull the bedsheets over them before they go to sleep.
Another use of tuck is to move your body to fit in a smaller space (kind of). An example of using tuck this way is "to tuck into a ball", which is when you fold your arms, legs, and head inwards so that you resemble a ball.
To roll can mean the same as to rotate, usually along the ground though. When you kick a ball, it will roll across the floor.
You can also "roll something up", which means to fold something over and over into a cylinder or tube.
