    Hello;

    Kindly use the steps below and try if this can assit you.

    1) Get Full Form Source Code:

     

    On the Form Builder:

    1.1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,

    1.2. Click on "Share Form"

    1.3. Click on "Advanced Options"

    1.4. Click on "Full Source Code".

    2. Copy it to your favorite HTML Editor, find the textbox fields and increase their sizes manually.

    You can use CSS to edit the size or use JavaScript to get the element and change its size. It should be possible. Give it a try if you are familiar with CSS/JavaScript.
