Thanks for contacting us.
Are you refering to the comment area of this form https://www.jotform.com/32857073302148? If so, it could that there's a CSS code you have added that is enforcing the text area keep that width.
I will check your CSS code and will get back to you later if I have found the solution.
Thanks for using Jotform

I think that you were trying to change the width from our form builder as I can see, after removing all your CSS code, that you have given 80 Columns of width to the Textarea:

That code was enforcing it to be very narrow:
So in order to make the textarea wider you need to edit the values of the width and the max-width. For example, if you change the width and the max-width to 317px the textarea will be in this way:
So, I cloned your form to make the changes, I changed the code to this:
