Yes, her beak looks long to me. How recently was she at the vet?
The beak and cere also look extremely dry.
If she allows you to handle her, you can use a Q-tip to apply a tiny bit of Olive Oil to moisturize both.
Be very careful not to get it into her nares.

She was at the vet June 2nd, i dont believe its gotten longer since then. Should i take her to the vet again? Is this a serious problem?
i will try and do that but she may not allow me im afraid. Is there anything else I can do to try and help her?

What diet do you have her on?

A Healthy Diet for your Budgie
Quality Seed Mix
CuttleBones, Mineral Blocks and Manu Clay Roses
Safe Foods for Budgies
The Truth about GRIT

If she able to eat with no problems, then wait a few weeks to see if the beak gets longer.
If so, then she needs to go in for a beak trim.
ive been transitioning her to pellets and she’s eating mostly pellets now with just a bit of seed. Before that it was just seed. She has a cuttlebone and mineral block but im not sure she really uses them :( I will make sure to monitor her beak, thank you so much.
