Should I top off White Widow auto flower?

After 36 days two of my White Widow auto flowers are about 16 inches tall but relatively skinny. There are currently six nodes. Do you think I should top off the top node to achieve more horizontal growth?

Being an auto I wouldn’t. You may stunt it. The window for topping an auto is very short.

Are buds developing? A photo would be helpful.

Thanks for the advice @covertgrower. Really appreciate it.

Thanks @KeystoneCops. No buds have developed. Here are a couple of pictures. Appreciate your help.

I see pistils, and they look stacked as opposed to just showing sex.

You could prune (top) at this point, but it could be a folly. If it were me, I’d top one to see the difference, or I’d use LST to play with apical dominance. Gently pulling the meristem sideways will elicit growth from the “lower” internodes without stressing the plant.

Thanks a lot, @KeystoneCops. I’ll give LST a shot. Really appreciate your insight.
