Appropriate pot for Fiddleleaf Fig?

A couple of days ago received two young fiddleleaf fig plants. They each came in a 4" growers pot. I put both of them in this 6" pot. Is this enough room for them or should I move them to the 9" pot I originally wanted to put them in. I put them here thinking the 9" pot would be too big for them.
If moving them to the bigger pot is best, should I wait until they've settled a bit first?

Also, at what rate does this plant grow? I know it won't happen overnight, but I'm looking forward to Fred & Ethel here growing into a pretty "tree"

Lastly, the plants came with tiny brown spots on some of it's leaves. Would that be just from being shipped or is this something I should be concerned about?
