spindly snaps

These snaps seem so delicate and fragile. I'm afraid they are growing too tall before they get their true leaves. and they'll fall over in a faint b4 I can transplant 'em . I also think that about my zinnias, which I might have started too soon.
If anyone has grown these before, do these look too skinny and sickly or are they just really young?

RE: spindly snaps

They need a great deal more light. This appearance is known as etiolation and results from too little light, and to a lesser extent, too much warmth, resulting in long, pale, spindly growth.
