Beginner Question: Do I trim a side by side plant

So I put more than one seed in the hole and now have 2 sprouts about 3-5 inches tall, most are doing ok but a couple are getting extremely thin and buckling. My Question is; is one plant “hogging” all the nutrients and should I eliminate the extra 1 on the other pots as well?

I wouldnt be growing 2 plants in the same pot at any point. I would cull the weaker plants now before they get more roots. Because once you do chop one out, the roots from it will begin to decay in the pot, which will make your ph drop and become to acidic. Then you’ll be fighting your ph the whole time

Ok, noted. they are side by side and I was thinking about just pulling one out but it didnt seem as though it was willing to work with me…

The tap roots might be tangled together. I wouldnt pull it up if it’s a small seeding…I’d just cut it at the ground and continue on.
