|Please see pictures below.
Parsley stunted and spots on it.
What can I do about it?

|Have you checked for bugs. Put white piece of paper under leaves and tap leaves. Look for little black specks that move. That would probably be spider mites.
It could be a bacteria to.
Maybe it dosent like growing with its friend in same pot.
I'd start some more by itself, in fresh pot with fresh soil, and get rid of poor one.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|Parsley puts down a deep taproot. I wonder if maybe that pot you've got it in doesn't have enough depth of soil for the plant? I'd try re-potting it in its own pot with fresh soil, in a deeper pot with at least 6in. of soil depth.
Also as Philip suggested it has spotty leaves so look for spider mites. Just run your finger along the underside of the leaves. If they come away with a reddish-orange stain on them, you've got mites. A spray of soapy water 1/2tsp dish soap to a quart of water is the treatment. You need to repeat at least 3 times a few days apart so that you get all the generations - eggs not yet hatched will not be killed by the first spray. Rinse the soap off after a few minutes, too.

|I agree the photos are much too small to see any detail.
It looks to me as if the pots are very small and there is not enough soil in the pots. Also, parsley likes to be potted at the same depth it grew in the previous pot. Planting too deeply would make the plant unhappy.
