So they wont be permantly deformed.
They will fatten out, and begin to look more rounded. You can see this happening now at the head of these youngsters. The basal area will eventually become more root like in appearance (cork- like) as the head of the cactus fattens and expands.
As has been stated, moving the lighting closer will help and if you are maintaining good warm temps, you could feed them an appropriate cactus fert, something like a 3/6/3 to boost them a bit. All in all, if these are yearlings, the most sensitive period of enviromental needs has passed, and you can safely begin to toughen them up to more natural conditions.

They look very healthy, don't worry about them just try to acclimate so they can get Sun Bennies. (Benifical rays of the Sun)

Where are these being kept? In a dark cellar or garage? Seems to be no light source visible. Cacti need LIGHT all year round.
i tie mine in a black garbage bag and put them in the closet, they need to hibernate in the winter
i keep them under full light 10 hours a day
