|Look good. Whats going on with those in bottom right corner, are they dead, or need more water ?
I'd mound them up with compost, or dirt to keep them upright.
You do know that, potatoes grow potatoes, above seed ?
Sweet potatoes, that grow potatoes, below, seed.
They are young plants ! I'm i right ?
Get em buried deeper.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|How long ago did you plant them?
What are they planted in?
Most look OK, one or two look real good.
What type are they?

|Your potato plants look fine. One way to increase your crop is to mound them near to the top with straw or hay. Beware of compost; too much nitrogen will make large plants but few potatoes.
BTW, in post-Columbus Europe during wars, farmers who grew potatoes fared better than farmers who grew wheat. Wheat could be burned to kill the crops, potatoes couldn't...
