Lemon Tree Grown From Seed

My lemon tree is about 1-1 1/2 feet tall and very spindly. Can I top it by cutting off a few inches or should I leave it alone?

Though most Lemon Trees really don't need pruning, you can prune above a leaf node to promote side branching,
Make sure your little seedling is getting enough sunlight. 6 plus hours of direct sunlight.
