It would be best to wait longer for them to produce branching on their own. Forcing them to branch can cause unattractive forking in the tree structure. Heading back will also interrupt the root development and force them to send energy to branch formation.

If however, you want to shape them into shrubs, and not trees, you can head them back to force branching.
