I bought the snake plant some months ago and decided to re-pot the plant and found that the roots were only 8.cm long and the leaves are almost 29.cm tall is this normal or is there a problem? that needs to be dealt with. The leaves all look in good condition.

Snake plants have shallow roots that are rhizomes. They grow more outward than downward. So your roots are perfectly fine.
