My container grown Grapefruit is 5 years old she spends the summers outside in full sun, winters she spends in my living room and only gets a couple hours of in direct sun, the past 4 winters she didn't grow at all, this winter she's growing and my question is should I prune the top or just leave it alone and let her grow as is?

Pruning will keep your plant looking more full and compact. It is a personal aesthetic choice and all yours!

Thanks Will, I'd rather keep her on the shorter side anyway, right now she's over 3ft,I know I'll never see fruit, I just love how she's grown for me from just a few seeds spit in dirt on a bet nodding This was taken in July
