Tomatillos are not like tomato plants so don't plant them any deeper in the soil than they are growing now. If you do, the stems will rot. It's better to plant them at the same soil depth and either stake them upright or set tomato cages over them for some support. As they begin to grow they will thicken up so don't be too concerned about their appearance right now.
