That is pretty shallow, Arnhild.  I generally use 7.62 cm (3.5 inch)
square pots for seed starting.  In your case, think you might want to
try turning out the whole seed pot into a larger, deeper pot -
carefully so as not to disturb the infant root systems.

I have done this with Cyclamen seedlings that I did not separate in a
timely fashion and it seemed to work fine.  Have also done it with
other non-tuberous seedlings I was dilatory about pricking out.

Just select a larger pot and fill it to about 5 cm  from the top with
mix and turn out your seedlings and set their entire mass on top;
fill in around the edges and water them in.  Should be OK.
