Cut them now, especially the tallest ones. Make a 45-degree cut about 12 in. below the flower head (or some other appropriate length).

RE: theae were seeds

If you don't want such tall plants, there are smaller, bushier varieties, or you could pinch them back much earlier in the season. I have lots of seed for pink and white varieties of the shorter zinnias. The flowers are much smaller and single, but they do stay neat looking.
