I have this in my house. Are the long growths part of what the plant should look like or should I cut them off?

It appears that they are searching for light. These are meant for bright, full sun. Anything less than that will cause what you are seeing here. Unfortunately, cutting them will kill them, since that is their only point of growth, though they will reproduce by pups if cared for properly. Just get them into much brighter lighting and they will do fine.
