    I'm not sure I understand what you really mean and I would like to apologize. Are you asking for a field where respondents can enter more texts compared to a regular textbox field?
    I'm not sure if that's what you mean but you can try to use a Text Area field.

    Can you help us understand your concern better by giving us more information, please?

    We will wait for your response. Thank you.

    The type of field suitable for open ended questions is the Text Area field suggested by my colleague. If you want the user to dynamically add as many Text Area fields he wants, you could use the Configurable List widget, which allows you to have a Text Area field, which size can be customized. Example: https://form.jotform.co/61704767997878
