You can separate them into three pots, one plant in each. First water (soak) the three, then very carefully pull them apart by removing the entire root ball and with as little force as possible separate the roots. Be as careful as possible not to destroy roots although some will be unavoidable. Immediately gently plant each separated plant into its new home pot and water in thoroughly.

The sooner you do this the better and the better chances of success.

The way I would do it is to gently wash away the soil from all of the seedings and very gently separate the roots. Then repot each into a container about the same size as they are in now.
