When I first sowed the watermelon seeds, I put 3-5 per hole... almost all of the seeds have germinated and around 1.5 inches high but grouped together around 2-4 other seedlings less than an inch away. My question is when I should thin the plants and whether I should transplant them or cut all but the strongest one per hole at the soil level.

Cut. It is almost impossible to move without severe damage to the roots. It is always nice to have good germination. Hilling together is fine but an inch is really too close.
