Cornflower seedlings

Hi there... I have grown some Red Boy cornflower seeds, and they have got very leggy. Should I pinch the tops out, or support them with little stakes in their legginess...? Cheers

     Can we see a whole seedling? It's hard to tell if they're pinchable.
    Can you give them some more light? That's what they really needed
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    They're not pinchable, I’ve never pinched them, they look fine,  when they’ve grown on a bit more, pot them on and sink a bit deeper in the compost.

    ok, thanks, @Lyn. I've just potted them on from cells today! A question I've been meaning to ask... when you pot on, can you ALWAYS bury the little baby leaves under the soil?
